The Comedians

 The Comedians is a 1967 film directed and produced by Peter Glenville, based on the novel of the same name by Graham Greene, who also wrote the screenplay. The stars were Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Peter Ustinov and Alec Guinness.

Paul Ford and Lillian Gish had supporting roles as a Presidential candidate and wife, as did James Earl Jones as an island doctor.

Set in Haiti during the Papa Doc Duvalier regime, it was filmed in Dahomey. The film tells the story of a sardonic white hotel owner and his encroaching fatalism as he watches Haiti sink into barbarism and squalor.

The role played by Elizabeth Taylor was originally intended for Sophia Loren.

The film's tag line was: "They lie, they cheat, they destroy… they even try to love.
