I don;'t agree with Brewster. The performance by Loren is exactly what one would 
expect of such an actor, given that the film is a thriller with political 
overtones, with typical appearances by Peter Finch and Jack Hawkins (given their 
other film roles at this period). The different versions of the novel (and, of 
course, the filmscript) reflect the fact that it was, ostensibly, written for 
Loren, and the novel is a page-turner - typical of LD when he wanted to write a 
'secret-service plus girl-meets-boy'-type adventure, but held within the fragile 
politics of the Levant of which he was well aware. Like Kim, game-plus-quest.
The DSC hopes to publish an edition of the text in the near-ish future.
Richard Pine

The Durrell School of Corfu also has a VHS copy of the film, which is  - how 
shall one put it? - pretty bad.
