    Any of the books in this series that I have read, has had something of a tendency to overanalyze the movie (whoops! I mean, film). Similarly the The Third Man, this was a movie I'd heard of, but never actually seen, at the time that I found this book on the bookstore shelf. In this case, though, I thought the back-story to the movie of great interest. (And also, in this case, found the movie more or less deserving of all the verbal attention.)

    An interesting study of the film, going over it in great detail considering the book's short length. I found it a little romanticised though, more of a fan's analysis than a critical study of the film.

    Sharp, insightful analysis of one of my favorite films. Even where I disagree with the author, he gives me a lot to think about!

    Mark Walker
    Makes you want to watch the film again. Draws out some features of the film that are less obvious. Gives a good background to the director, producer, and leading actors.

    Amusing and cynical play about the rich upper classes, their immorality and amorality.
