These are not publicly visible crimes. Jack encounters another old associate, Eric Paice Ian Hendrywho refuses to tell Jack who is employing him as a chauffeur. Carter's killing of Brumby  and his own assassination were further alterations from the novel, emphasising the film's parallels with revenge tragedy  and Carter's role as what Geoff Mayer calls "the moral agent The naturalistic camera work avoids cliches and adds effectively to the atmosphere.
The tops of the staithes as they appear in the film have been demolished so only the base of the structure remains In shooting the scene in which Carter throws Brumby to his death from the multi-storey car park, Hodges used four shots: one of the pair struggling high up on the stairs; one from the lowest level of the stairwell where Caine actually threw Bryan Moseley over the side onto mattresses; one shot of a dummy falling; and one of the body of Brumby on top of a crushed car.
Carter chases Paice along these near the film's conclusion. Carter moves through a world of working-class pubs, boardinghouses managed by sad-eyed and warm-voiced widows and off-track betting parlors.
