    Which is Alec Guinness' best performance?

    Just been reminded of the brilliance of Alec Guinness, and was wondering what you think his best performance was. I would go for George Smiley in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, how about you?

    "Help me Obi-wan Kenobi, you're my only hope."

    Okay, maybe not.  Maybe Bridge on the River Kwai?

      He is of course memorable in Star Wars, but I believe he ended up hating the role.
      Bridge on the River Kwai is a good film as well, although I find it incredibly sad

    Kind Hearts and Coronets was a good one.  He played no less than eight characters in that movie.
