Loser Takes All

Graham Greene adapted his own least interesting novella for the screen, but later admitted that the result was 'a disaster'. The film is stymied by the miscasting of Rossano Brazzi as the middle-aged accountant who loses his fiancée Johns when he breaks the bank at Monte Carlo (understandably, Greene wanted Alec Guinness for the part). Filmed in 'Scope for no apparent reason; remade almost as indifferently in 1990 as Strike It Rich.
