He is helped in no small part by James Mason as Brett Aimsley, a sophisticated, at-ease former junior partner in a brokerage firm, and John Mills as Lt. Col. Clifford Southey, a former clerk in that same company. During the war, the lieutenant carries his sense of inferiority from his peacetime job as a clerk with him. So when he has a chance to nail Brett (a junior officer now) for trying to bring some censored goods back into London, he takes the chance and Brett is drummed out of service. Brett heads for Tahiti and a pretty good life in the sun, until Clifford shows up on the island with big plans to build a hotel -- bringing with him the same defensive attitude.

Wake in Fright has also been restored and is finally available, in Australia's region 4 code. A big reason to thank Oppo.

With the advent of Air travel soon after this period tourism trumped the objections of the inhabitants and so the conclusion of the story in this film was sadly short lived.
I believe that Quinns hut and bar was dismantled and re erected somewhere in California in the 1970s.and the waterfront is now unrecognisable from its former self.
Also the colour of the film makes me want to dash off to the location.
Not a bad film, but not a very good film either, or to put it another way its
But when is James Mason film "A Touch of Larceny" coming out
sunny garb. A perfect sunny watch. Love it !
