Radio TImes – Kind Hearts and Coronets: Like Father, Like Daughter
Posted 11 years ago and submitted by Graeme Neil Reid | Share link:


A commission from the Radio Times is always a welcome one and especially when the subject is a favourite. The 1949 Ealing comedy film ‘Kind Hearts and Coronets’ is one of those films that gets repeated a lot and is especially good viewing on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Louis Mazzini (played by Dennis Price) is a distant relative of D’Ascoyne family and he plans to murder his way throughout the family tree to receive what he believes is rightful inheritance. The magical part is that nearly all of the family members he hunts down are superbly played by Alec Guinness, a masterclass in comedic acting. The brief from the Radio Times was for a radio drama sequel to the original play the film was based on.

I employed Graeme as the sole illustrator and designer on The Dangerous Book of Heroes. The quality of his work was excellent and he was great at understanding what we at HarperCollins needed, and at doing it quickly too. It was a complicated project, and the drawings needed to be historically accurate as well as engaging for the reader and Graeme was particularly good at paying attention to the details which were important to us and the author. The project was on a tight timescale and he rose to the challenge, producing everything in time and to budget, with great creativity, speed and care.
