Brighton Rock

Brighton Rock
  • 1947
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Boulting
  • Cast: Richard Attenborough, Hermione Baddeley, William Hartnell.

The pre-luvvie Attenborough brings a menacing delinquincy to Pinkie, who has to sweet-talk a waitress who witnesses one of his murders. The seaside atmosphere is essentially English and somehow sordid in this fine adaptation of Graham Greene's novel, which has lost none of its power to thrill.
