GREENE, GRAHAM. 1904-1991.
Typed Letter Signed ("Graham Greene"), 1 p, 8vo, Antibes, September 23, 1985, to Bette Amsler, on personal stationery, very light creasing.

Greene writes an admirer who asks about the film version of one of his novels: "BRIGHTON ROCK was released in the United States under the name YOUNG SCARFACE. This may help you to trace it. God knows, of course, what they did in the States with the cutting. The end was bad but otherwise it was not at all a bad film." The film of Brighton Rock was released in the UK in 1947, starring Richard Attenborough and with a screenplay co-written by Greene and Terence Rattigan.
