John Boulting's Brighton Rock is a milestone film; it made Richard Attenborough a star; it is the first realistic depiction of the British criminal underworld; and the first of Graham Greene's adaptations of his own work. Godfather of classic crime films like Get Carter and The Long Good Friday, its American cousins include Little Caesar and Mean Streets. To mark the centenary of Greene's birth, Steve Chibnall presents a detailed re-view of this authentic slice of English seaside ir. It includes scene-by-scene analysis, the writing, production and reception of the film, and the real activities of the racecourse gangs and protection racketeers that inspired the drama. Steve Chibnall also uncovers the mystery of missing scenes that, if restored, would give Brighton Rock a significantly different emphasis, and he reveals new information about the films' controversial ending.
Steve Chibnall is leader of the Film Studies pathway and co-ordinator of the British Cinema & Television Research Group, De Montfort University, Leicester. His books include Get Carter: The British Film Guide 6 (I.B.Tauris), J. Lee Thompson and as co-editor, British Crime Cinema.
