Trivia

This is famously the movie where Howard Hawks said Lauren Bacall let her voice get high again, and as a result no one liked her in it. Curiously enough there is no sign of this in the actual movie. If no one liked her in it maybe she was just miscast as an Englishwoman. See more »

Goofs

In a scene late in the film, where Lauren Bacall and Charles Boyer are driving in the car, one angle shows a two-tone steering wheel (amber on top, ivory on the bottom/grip side); but in the next shot, a closeup on the steering wheel, the entire steering wheel is ivory. See more »

Faithful To The Book But A Bit Dull
27 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

While this is a faithful adaptation, it is much less exciting than Greene's novel. Also, it's a bit ridiculous when people say things to Boyer like, "You're Spanish, aren't you?"

Still, the movie's not at all bad, just slow-moving.
