"There's a perversity and offbeat humour in Neame's collaborations with Alec Guinness not found in much other British cinema of the late 1950s."
With a screenplay by Alec Guinness based on Joyce Cary's novel, this is the comic story of a down-and-out artist, just out of jail, who convinces wealthy people to pay him for paintings they didn't actually commission. Academy Award Nominations: Best (Adapted) Screenplay.
