 Great! It started in my head already. Now there is no reason not to watch.  My first introduction to zither music. It's actually enchanting. It can only be surpassed by the music from Zorba the Greek. I'm dancing!


Great tune! I added it to a playlist I'm working on!

 Had you heard it before? The music is so much more intrusive than I remembered. The volume perhaps. A conversation would occur and then suddenly a few loud chords for punctuation. It was downright operatic. 


So back when I was very young and we lived in an old apartment block, with my musical Berlinerin auntie Gretchen who sang soprano and my dramatic actress auntie Franka who sang contralto both living in the same block, the aunties and my Maman would gather at least weekly for coffee, gossip and cards or Scrabble...and warble ‘tunefully’ to this classic (and other cinematic hits). The joke being that Maman couldn’t sing, and Gretchen didn’t really understand the English lyrics.  question rolleyes
Thank you for very happy memories smile


@joanne have you seen the film? Its very moody. I always fall for black and white movies. But the film leaves me wanting more Orson Welles and less Joseph Cotton.


There was a family friend the aunties said looked like Joseph Cotton, and they hummed whenever he attended one of the big dinner parties cheesecheese

Maman and I used to watch the film together whenever it was on tv, usually on a late Saturday spy special...so much fun! She got me into the genre, both books and film.

 At School of Visual Arts we had an interesting selection in the Humanities division. I took a great class called Spies and Eyes. Although that book was not on the list we did have a Graham Greene novel. I'm going to dig through my notes to see if I can find it. 

On our reading list was The Manchurian Candidate, and one of the Raymond Chandler novels with Philip Marlowe, It may have been The Big Sleep. I loved all of the Chandler comments and the fact that one of the characters shared my last name which is rather uncommon.
