Albert Finney, Billie Whitelaw, Frank Finlay
The festival kicks off with Stephen Frears' first feature, a wonderful pastiche of noir murder mysteries. More than a series of Bogart in-jokes, it features some fine performances - Finney in particular is superb as the Liverpool bingo-caller-turned-sleuth.
