Customer Reviews

More Orson Welles, please...

The Third Man is, simply, one of those classics which transcends the time in which it was filmed. It is as noir and suspenseful today as it was when released. The mood, the zither soundtrack, the surprising plot twist, and the sheer presence of Welles (and the great Jo Cotton) are irresistbly compelling. Please iTunes, make it your 2010 New Year's Resolution to offer the rest of Orson Welles' catalog through the store!



The next best thing to Citizen Kane

Well hopefully itunes you will get Citizen Kane on your store soon but this is a great addition it has a nice story and the ending has a great plot twist the movie is filled with suspense and you will be on the edge of your seat until the final moments now itunes there is one thing yo need to do to this movie there is a small editing goof i think in the first scene where it jumps mid word
