  1. Really enjoyed this one Shambles and you know, that “impression” you had that Welles had directed The Third Man is not off the mark at all. If you look at Reed’s earlier works you’ll immediately see a very conservative film style, no Dutch angles, no stylistic dissolves or wipes, Welles is all over this thing. Loved the Harry Lime radio show too! Nice job guys!

  2. And Vienna is a real character in this film, too.

  3. Hey thanks, Marc! Really appreciate that, as I’m sure Jimbo does as well.
