The Comedians (1967)



















































Starring:
A poor nation can mean riches...for the corrupt. In an absorbing screenplay based on his novel, master of intrigue Graham Greene sets passions both romantic and political against the backdrop of Haiti during the brutal rule of Papa Doc Duvalier. Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor lead a who's who cast of stars who portray diplomats, imposters, adulterers, hangers-on, the indolent, and even a pair of pacifist vegetarians ~ all caught up in the strongman's reign of terror. From the discovery of a dead body at the bottom of a pool to a harrowing showdown with Papa Doc's ruthless secret police. The Comedians tells a story as disturbing and redeeming as mankind's conflicted heart.
