Roy Boulton directs this classic adaptation of the Graham Greene novel detailing the activities of a group of thugs in 1930s Brighton. Pinkie Brown is the head of a gang of small time crooks who make their money from a protection racket centred around Brighton race course. Pinkie is known for his short fuse and brutality, so his murder of a rival, Fred, is very much in character. Pinkie believes, nonetheless, that he has got away with the crime until the promptings of a suspicious local woman, Ida, threaten to have the case reopened. Since only one person can identify him as the murderer, the waitress, Rose Brown, Pinkie comes up with an ingenious solution - marry Rose to stop her testifying against him. But will things go to plan?
