Alida Valli



I'd missed this but yesterday it was announced that Alida Valli had passed away. Perhaps one of my favourite scenes ever is in 'The Third Man' when she comments to Jospeh Cotton that the cat only loved Harry and the camera follows the cat out of the window into the street where it nestles on a nicely shined pair of shoes, a light comes on...
