Background to Danger (1943)

The Dastardly Past:  Background to Danger (1943).


On July 3, 1943, Warner Bros. released espionage thriller Background to Danger, starring George Raft, Sidney Greenstreet, and Peter Lorre.  Critics agreed that it was an above-average World War II adventure.  Eric Ambler’s novel Uncommon Danger provided the basis for the script, which was another of the Warner screenplays to which William Faulkner contributed during his time as a contract writer in Hollywood in the 1930s and 1940s.
