Barbican Film welcomes acclaimed actor Clive Francis to talk about Graham Greene's Our Man in Havana in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the release of Carol Reed’s film.

Clive will talk about his memories of Greene, why he became besotted with his books (especially Our Man in Havana), and about his stage adaptation which opens at Nottingham Playhouse in October.

Peppered with many anecdotes about the making of the movie, Clive’s presentation is followed by a screening of the film – a witty Secret Service, Cold War comedy-thriller set in pre-Castro Cuba, which Greene himself adapted for the cinema.

Alec Guinness
is wonderful, pulling the wool over the eyes of pukka spy chief Noel Coward.
