Dangerous Edge: A Life of Graham Green
The History Channel  |  March 16, 2019

This is a remarkable portrait of a great writer. It explores how Graham Greene's life both inspired great writing and drove him to attempt suicide. He was a British spy, a doubting Catholic, and a manic-depressive who wrote critically acclaimed bestselling novels, including The Quiet American, Brighton Rock, The End of the Affair, and The Third Man. This documentary weaves Greene's novels and movies into the story of his life: the struggle between good and evil, love and betrayal; it reveals an extraordinary man who travelled the globe to escape the boredom of ordinary existence and became a writer addicted to danger. This film is an unforgettable journey in search of Graham Greene's most elusive character: himself.
