Superb stuff - Outcast of the Islands review by RP

Spoiler Alert
21/06/2012

They don't make them like this any more! Superb acting, excellent dialogue, 'proper' actors, goodies and baddies, black-and-white.

Directed by Carol Reed and based on the Joseph Conrad novel, the film tells the tale of Peter Willems (Trevor Howard) as a downright cad who first cheats his employer, becomes a social outcast, meets up with old friend Captain Tom Lingard (Ralph Richardson) who takes pity on him, and takes him to a remote trading outpost. There he becomes infatuated with a native girl, betrays the trust and friendship of Captain Lingard - and ends up as a total outcast.

Robert Morley, Wendy Hiller, George Coulouris all have excellent parts and even Robert Morley's daughter plays a part. A classic. 5/5 stars - highly recommended.
