In listening to your podcast of 2005, you suggest that The Third Man is not film noir, at least if we think of noir as a genre. Do you still feel that way? I was unsure if you liked the film or not, or if it was just that it doesn't fit into your definition of noir.
You mentioned that one of the reasons TTM is not in the noir category is that you need that American pulp background thrown into the mix. Do you think that there are any British films noir?
If The Third Man is not noir because it ends with justice being carried out, then why do you consider The Maltese Falcon to be a film noir?
Gun Crazy is one of my favorite films. Can you discuss this film?
I am really glad you like the combination of women's films and noir. I enjoy strong women in film, and noir really brings a lot of bang for the buck that way. Another film popular here at the SSO is The Reckless Moment. Any thoughts on this one?
Thanks again for visiting! I hope you will come back and chat with us again. It seems to have gone by so quickly!

Thank you for your lovely response earlier in this thread. One of my truly guilty pleasures as far as romantic comedies is The Major and The Minor. Would you consider it an official screwball comedy, or does it's unorthodox nature send it into a different pantheon? And do you like it?
I appreciate your visit here so much, and thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and expertise here on the SSO. Thank you!
