KIM PHILBY was also the role model for Graham Greene's character in
"The Third Man" - Harry Lime, although it must be pointed put that
this is hotly disputed by a nobody-nerd from Nowhere, New York.
Then Willy burped.....
This is why you're an asshole. Your head is so filled with your
delusions that nothing can penetrate the black-hole of trivia. I don't
depute the idea -- although you citing an article that suggested
Graham Greene wrote The Third Man to warn Philby is absolutely
ridiculous -- although I seriously doubt it. Ultimately, the notion is
irrelevant to the film and you are one of the insidiously stupid
people that believes that accepting this trivia leads to some greater
knowledge of the film. That being referential is a sign of
intelligence and insight when in fact all it amounts to is a
distraction with little or no value. It's similar to people referring
to Orson Welles' cuckoo clock speech as the height of the movie even
though Welles stole the speech and the Swiss didn't invent the cuckoo
clock, the Germans did. Sometimes the hardest part of watching a film
for what it is, is getting all the bullshit out of your head so you
can just watch the film. That would never occur to a dimwitted
knucklehead like yourself because you want to prattle on about trivia
because I haven't seen a single interesting insight you've had about a
film in all the years that I've been here.
1. I never claimed that Greene wrote the article to warn Philby. I
posted the article as a reference to the fact that Harry Lime was
modeled after Kim Philby. Your suggestion is typical of your abstruse
way of reasoning; that is, to twist everything around and point out
irrelevant details to bolster your lack of insight.
2. I wrote somewhere else that Welles was not the originator of the
cuckoo clock speech. You haven't been paying attention - which is one
of your BIG problems in life. Everything is about YOU!
3. Nothing I have posted is irrelevant to the discussion - except in
the mind of a dim-witted, paranoid prat such as yourself. Trivia
exists - and is just as much a part of a film's discussion as anything
else. Lordy, you are a hopeless twerp!
