Long before wielding a lightsaber as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Sir Alec Guinness established himself as one of film’s great actors. Discover Guinness’s masterful performance as the uncompromising Colonel Nicholson in The Bridge on the River Kwai (1957), and in eight comic roles in Kind Hearts and Coronets (1949).  Tickets on sale December 11.

“Few actors have been so elusive and so captivating at once, so microfaceted in their offhanded subtlety. No matter how well you think you know Guinness as a performer, there’s always more to see.” Stephanie Zacharek, Village Voice
