NotesThe film from Graham Greene's novel is notable mainly for Attenborough's performance as the sociopathic Pinky Brown. He's a small time gang leader who during a robbery at a racetrack kills someone. To get an alibi he promises to marry a waitress. After the marriage he dedicates himself to driving her insane and later murdering her. Black, downbeat, seedy, sordid, a shock for those who believe the only crime then was scrumping apples.
