The Third Man

Recommended Posts

I'm sure there's a topic on this film already, but my searches came up bone-dry, so here you go.

We just happened to have Law & Order v. 1.0 on last night and Jack McCoy cross-examined the bad guy by retelling the ferris wheel scene. I can't imagine something like that would ever really happen, but he name-checked Welles and Joseph Cotton and everything. It was a great reference.

I came back late last night and caught the last 10 minutes of the show, which Sarah was watching. I liked Waterston

Sure. But if you can buy McCoy being allowed to tell the guy a lengthy story on the stand, the guy tearing up isn't too incredulous.

And then he got, what, 600 years in the pokey?

Bizarre. A search for "third" turns up NOTHING, not even THIS thread. I wonder why that is.
