Last week the entertaining Richard Ayoade fronted a Channel 4 Travel programme about Vienna and within it the admiration for ground breaking The Third Man was clear to see.
Having seen Ayoade taking a tour of Vienna's sewers I was reminded that we'd got a copy of the much celebrated film at that time unseen - last night that particular itch was dealt with and we watched the film, rapt.
If you've not seen The Third Man I'd recommend it - the soundtrack, the cinematography and script are masterful and I'm reminded of how many layers graham Greene was able to work at in his writing.
[Interesting to learn that Guy Hamilton later a Director of James Bond films Body Doubled for Orson Welles in some of the film].
The Nib (as I like to call it)

Sunny in Ealing this morning and with less traffic took a couple of pictures of Ealing's own skyscraper ( officially The Arc I think)
