Naked City has wonderful cinematography but hammy Fitzgerald and bland Duff weaken the film. High Noon is a classic western, not much I can add to it's acclaim. I've never seen The Bishop's Wife. Pelham is tremendous fun. "Well it's the Taking of Pelham One Two Three/ If you want a doo-doo rhyme then come see me!"

For me, this is one of those rare movie finds. I had never heard of it and it just happened to come on TV after I had finished watching something else. It grabbed me almost immediately and I found myself enthralled through the very end. I love it when that happens. Can't wait to see it again.
