Man, i gotta have this book, but $75 is kinda steep.  It may go even higher.  Anyway, good to know that this book about the best western of all time is coming out...

You can reserve it now, and the price may go down before it is released, which youíll get with Amazonís pre-order price guarantee. If The price does not go down, you can always cancel. They donít charge your card until a few days before the release date.

This looks pretty good. I came across it on Youtube.

Both the movie and the Criterion release of it are really good IMHO... The Criterion release (as well as the UK release) also has an earlier Kubrick noir with it, 'Killer's Kiss'. It's a bit clunky, but something about it I love. I upgraded my Criterion DVD's to the UK blu-ray, but kept the Criterion because of the different extra's.

And FWIW, in regards to the discussion about the ending... The entire suitcase business is pretty dumb and careless planning, but the ending itself is telegraphed in an earlier scene involving the suitcase.
Ok. I will check this out.  The Criterion price is really high at their website. Gonna see if Amazon or another source has it for a little less.  The plot looks interesting...

If there is already a thread about this, my bad. I couldn't find it.  This was a masterpiece.  The amazing thing about this picture is you would've thought this would be something Alfred Hitchcock would do.  I believe this is in the top 5 films that John Ford has done.  There is sooo much to like about this film.  The cinematography, the music, the acting, the plot, the direction. Everything was on point.  One of the keys is Victor Mclaglen.  He deservedly won the Oscar for his role in this film.  Ford's direction was no less brilliant.  The plot was very tight.  Due to RKO limiting Ford's production resources,  they inadvertently forced Ford to create this masterpiece.  Everything about the film was tight and to the point.

Cinematography- 2 points

Musical Score- 1.5 points

Acting- 2 points

Direction- 2 points

Plot-2 points

9.5  out of 10...

The weird angles on THE THIRD MAN seem kinda Welles-like, but I have no idea if he contributed to the directing.

I think it is a good, not great, movie.

Welles made at least some contributions to the 3rd Man, re-wrote some of his lines, at least he wrote that famous cuckoo clock speech.

It is a fantastic film.

I remember reading a rumor somewhere that Orson Welles had played a hand in directing, but this was debunked. I personally think it is not just Carol Reed's best film (out of the ones I've seen) but also one of the best, if not the best, British film ever made
