Directed By:  Joseph L. Mankiewicz

“In his 1958 adaptation of Graham Greene’s The Quiet American, Joseph Mankiewicz…had a kind of perfect visual pitch, and the film is always spot on, always the right thing at the right time.”
– The New Yorker

“Excellent viewing…The realism and adult nature of the show are remarkable for 1958 and it was considered a thinking man’s film from the get-go.”
– Glenn Erickson, DVDtalk.com

Writer-director Joseph L. Mankiewicz’s adaptation of Graham Greene’s The Quiet American (1958) gives us a very early look at the burgeoning tragedy of Vietnam. It focuses on a jaded English journalist (Michael Redgrave), based in Saigon and more or less settled in with his Vietnamese mistress, Phuong (Giorgia Moll). Then an apparently idealistic young American aid worker (Audie Murphy) arrives, and all bets are off: when the jealous journo learns that the Yank may actually be a spy, he sets in motion a series of terrible events. Highlighted by a moody score from Mario Nascimbene.
