I want to see this film again
9 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I read Conrad's Victory and thought it was a fantastic book then I saw the 1940's version of the film on British TV late one night and remember that being as true to the book as I could remember and also brilliant.

I read the book again on holiday in Bali the first time I'd been out of Europe and found it even better than the first time maybe because I was 20 odd years older.

I've always wanted to see the film again and wonder if it is available anywhere on DVD or to download.

Maybe its best remembered but I would love to see it again.
