The Smugglers (1947)

Surprisingly, this is a colour film and has a very worn look about it, ie, the colours run and this adds to the charm. Unfortunately, the picture quality isn't very good - it's actually very poor in places. Still, it's watchable and the story is good. Looks like Redgrave is not a man to be messed with. He WILL find you.
The film has a strange message and is no way a blueprint for anyone who wants to enter a life of gangster glamour. If you act like Dickie you are a dead man.
Yes, the flyleaf quotes Browne: "There's another man within me that's angry with me." A lot of Greene's novels were filmed, including The Third Man, The Heart of the Matter, and The End of the Affair. I think novelists deserve hugely more credit than they get for successful adaptations.
Yes I know this post is slightly off-point.
