Boys in Brown

Boys in Brown (1949)

Director: Montgomery Tully
Screenplay: Montgomery Tully (based on a play by Reginald Beckwith)
Role: Alfie Rawlings

Enjoying the opportunity to play the not completely stereotypical role of Alfie Rawlins, a Borstal boy, Dirk delivers a redeeming soliloquy about hopes and dreams with a sensitivity that adds dimension to the character’s otherwise dark profile.
