Sinful Davey is a 1969 adventure/ crime/ comedy film. The movie stars John Hurt, Pamela Franklin, and in early appearances Fionnula Flanagan and Anjelica Huston.


The film, directed by John Huston, is based on the autobiography of David Haggart entitled The Life Of David Haggart.[2] The film, about a Scottish rogue, was filmed in Ireland and consequently much of the cast have Irish accents instead of the more accurate Scottish accent.[3][4]
