Brighton Rock Screening

"Brighton Rock shows, as clearly as anything ever did, [Greene's] preoccupation with the allure of sin." TERRENCE RAFFERTY, NEW YORK TIMES FEATURING Richard Attenborough, Carol Marsh, Hermione Baddeley, William Hartnell, Graham Greene provided the source novel and screenplay for this Dickensian glimpse into the underbelly of a typical British seaside resort, where sun, sand, and carnivals camouflage another town entirely. In run-down Brighton, the boardwalk is lined with pasty day-trippers and incompetent singing acts, but it's also patrolled by teenage Napoleon Pinkie Brown (Richard Attenborough). Pinkie is looking to make his mark in any way possible, whether literally, with that knife he's constantly twirling, or through murder or, even worse, love, by seducing a naive girl.
