    Yes before getting into the story I will have to digress a bit on technology. I have a criterion DVD of “The Third Man” and I have a simple film script without all the rhetoric. I have Graham’s autobiography on the wish list.I like to have something physical that I know cannot be changed and does not require a subscription to the internet $$$ or a company to see what you bought.That being said, I am very impressed with this product that contains film scripts (literally film) and not just static pictures. What pictures there are enhance the reading experience. This is all inclusive with the product and does not require links to the net that may change in the future.Besides the intriguing technology, this is an excellent book and if you took out the film clips it can still hold its own. The introduction alone is like having someone telling you that your shoe is untied. Something you watched or read several times yet never thought of it in the light of the environment and time of the story. Rollo becomes Holly and almost Pansy.One of my favorite films is “Fallen Idle” and it is also covered in this book.I will not go into too much detail as that is why you are purchasing this book. However I can say no matter how many other sources of “The Third Man” that you own this makes a great compliment.

    The Kindle-only "The Third Man: Enhanced Edition" is a sort of hybrid. It's the novel - as Graham Greene wrote it - along with scenes from the movie, released in 1949. As Graham points out, the film's screenplay didn't exactly follow the novel (different ending) and the book is actually described as "This undisputed spy classic is now available for the first time with video and photography from the film that inspired the novel." So what came first? The movie or the novel? And if the novel came second, why did Greene give it a different ending? I'm not sure of the answers to those questions, but reading a book that comes with video and audio is a pretty cool experience. (One of the other reviewers of this "book" said the audio/video didn't work on his Kindle or the App. I had no problems with the App on my Ipad, though the video said it wouldn't play on my Ipad. But it DID! Go figure.)The story of the "Third Man" is well known. After WW2, Vienna, as well as Berlin, was occupied by the four allied powers and divided up into four sectors. The city was put "back together" in 1955 when the Soviets left eastern Austria and their Vienna Sector. But the film, showing life in the occupied post-WW2 city, used the bombed out city as background. Life was tough in postwar Vienna and citizens who had survived the war made precarious lives in the wrecked city. A lot of smuggling and black-market activity was a way to earn a living. Harry Lime - American in the movie/British in the book - was a crook extraordinaire. He was wanted by the police and Allied powers for participating in a particularly heinous crime of selling watered-down penicillin that killed and crippled children. Harry Lime, presumed dead in a car accident, has asked his friend, Holly Martins, to join him in Vienna. When Martins shows up, he finds Lime dead and attends his funeral. But was he really dead and how do the Viennese cops try to find him. The book is at its heart, a story of two old friends, one who disillusions himself in the other's eyes. When I saw this bad boy on the Amazon site for the amazing price of $2.99, I grabbed it. Because the audio and video worked for me, I received the full import of the "book". I'm sorry that others didn't and I'd advise checking with Amazon to see why it doesn't work on all Kindles. If it works for you, the audio/video and written combination of the book and movie is intriguing.(Another old movie that was also filmed post war, is "I Was a Male War Bride", with Cary Grant and Ann Sheridan.)

    This is a great book and movie, both of which I read and saw quite a number of years ago. Why I wanted to read it again was Harry Lime's observations on Switzerland and freedom and how all that it produced was the cuckoo clock. The comparison was to the tyranny, evil, and brutality of the Italian Renaissance and all of the glorious art that was produced-as is that justified it, In any event, I thought a similar comparison could be made to one of the cultures in our society but it would be politically incorrect to expand upon this thought. I believe this to be one of the more enjoyable and less pontific of Mr. Greene's books and he spares us a bit of his Catholic anguish.

    For all those who loved the Third Man, this version with some of the original film clips is tops. Sometimes video versions leave the viewer a bit mystified about details, and print readers sometimes fail to experience the vivid dynamics of situations. Here one can experience both clarity and explicitness side by side.

    Product description plainly states that the videos included with this book can be viewed in any one of several Kindle apps, including Kindle reader for Android phone. The videos do MPT play on my Android Kindle app, I get the message "This device cannot play videos". I updated the phone app and tried again: same result. I then tried to open this e-book in my browser with the Kindle cloud reader: I only got the message "This item cannot be opened in Kindle Cloud Reader."
