OK trying to find out the year this was set, some places say 1930's but the r2 dvd cover says 1947, but that is the year the film was made so im not too sure about that being correct.
anyone know for sure?

comments please.

The novel by Graham Greene was published in 1938 but I'm pretty sure that the time setting is referred to in some way non-specifically as ...in the 1930's Intra-War Briton...

The film (co-written by Greene) was made in 1947 and the script specifically describes the setting as...in 1947 Post-War Briton...

I haven't seen the movie but I have an edition of the book published after the movie and the preface (by Greene) refers to the time period distinction saying that the movie is set in 1947, but he doesn't list a year for the book.

I read it a long time ago so I can't say for sure that a specific year is not given, but I'm positive that the era is described as ...Intra-War...as opposed to ...Post-War...

So the short answer is...1947 (IMG:http://www.hirescovers.net/forum/style_emoticons/default/tongue2.gif)
