  • Notes

    • David Susskind, involved in producing this version of Graham Greene's famous novel (via a stage version by Pierre Bost and Denis Cannan), pronounced himself dissatisfied with the results, and determined immediately to do another version on a grander scale, in the hopes of improvement. In 1961, a much larger and longer version - this time taken directly from Greene's novel and adapted by Dale Wassermann - was screened, with Laurence Olivier, George C. Scott and Julie Harris in leading roles. However, reviews were decidedly mixed, and Graham Greene himself was highly critical.
