This review is from: Venetian Bird [DVD] (DVD)
I have waited years for this film to appear on video or dvd and have not been disappointed, copy is very good. I originally caught this one night when unable to sleep after completing a stretch of night shifts, wonderful Richard Todd as a private detective looking for an Italian partisan who helped an American pilot during WW2, the pilots relatives wish to reward him; enter lovely John Gregson as a photographer and a watcher for police, but is that all that he is? Nice to see Sid James playing a straight man and with a political plot and with a roof top chase in Venice, interest is maintained through out. A typical good British Film Noir of the 50's and what is sadly lacking in todays films, buy, watch and enjoy and then watch again if you like the 3rd man you will enjoy this film. More of the same please.
