Thank you eve. I had remembered Graham Greene being quoted about his displeasure with this film upon its release. Okay....

Sorry finance not Torn Curtain.

 

Clue 2: He takes up in a rundown building in New York City. The surrounding tenants do not have much to say to each other - even the sexy woman who lives down the hallway, who flirts with him. Maybe it is better that things are left unsaid.

If there is a lack of conversation throughout, I?ll guess *The Thief* with Ray Milland?by the way, in my last clue for *Travels With My Aunt* I noted that Maggie Smith was an Oscar winner and was nominated her *Aunt* role as well ? my mention of ?a variety of nominations, one win? was a reference to *Travels With My Aunt*, not Maggie?
