British Gangsters

BFI ScreenOnline this month takes a look at British gangsters, from Richard Attenborough’s memorable Pinkie in 1947’s Brighton Rock to equally vivid portrayals from the likes of Stanley Baker, Michael Caine, James Fox, Bob Hoskins, Richard Burton and Ben Kingsley. Meanwhile, focus is also on the centenaries of André Morell, the definitive Professor Quatermass, and Tommy Trinder, music hall star, comic actor and TV entertainer.
