Richard Attenborough’s unforgettably sinister turn as ‘Pinkie’ pervades this classic adaptation of the Graham Greene novel.
Director: John Boulting
Richard Attenborough is unforgettable as ‘Pinkie’, the brutal gangster who seduces and grooms a simple waitress, Rose (Carol Marsh) in the belief that she could incriminate him in a murder.
The classic adaptation (by Terence Rattigan) of Graham Greene’s novel is a taut and propulsive British crime drama, famous for its stark violence and a memorably cynical ending. It also offers the quintessential evocation of post-war Brighton; its tea-rooms, racetracks and dishevelled boarding houses all starkly captured Harry Waxman's superb, atmospheric cinematography.
