Here are some of my favourite British classic films:


Laughter in Paradise: a rich relative has died, and in order to inherit a share of his fortune, his four relatives have to complete certain tasks. Very funny film!


The Happiest Days of Your Life: there is some confusion at a boys' private school. A girls' private school has been sent to the same location for an indefinite amount of time. Also an amusing film.


An Inspector Calls: a sad story about the events which led up to a young woman's death. It's mentioned at the start of the film that she died.


Green for Danger: wonderful post-WWII whodunit.


Kind Hearts and Coronets: a snubbed relative seeks revenge on his snobby family by murdering them off, one by one, in order to inherit a title which he can't inherit unless those other relatives are dead.
