You Know, You Ought To Get Yourself A Girl

Robert Bidinotto bids addio to Alida Valli, the beautiful brunette caught between Orson Welles and Joseph Cotton’s characters in 1949’s brilliant The Third Man, one of the great noir mysteries of all time. Valli died this week at age 84. As Robert notes, she also starred, rather bravely, in a 1942 production of Ayn Rand’s We The Living, shot right under Mussilini’s nose in fascist Italy.
