Commentaires : Graham Greene’s 1938 novel was adapted into a play and then the famous 1947 film starring Richard Attenborough as Pinkie. Although ostensibly an underworld thriller, the story has an underlying challenge to Roman Catholic doctrine concerning the nature of sin and the basis of morality. Pinkie and Rose are Catholics, as was Greene, and their beliefs are contrasted with Ida's strong but non-religious moral sensibility. This musical version was directed by Richard Attenborough’s son, Michael, with music by the great film-score composer, John Barry and lyrics by Don Black. It was, however, a flop, with a general consensus that uninspired music and lyrics added nothing to a dark, disturbing and complex morality tale.
