Empire - 10/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "[W]ith fine performances from Michael Redgrave as the ailing Englishman and Claude Dauphin as the French police chief....A taut thriller full of pathos..."

Product Description:

Acclaimed director Joseph L. Mankiewicz (ALL ABOUT EVE) sat in the director's chair for this 1958 adaption of a Graham Greene novel. Set in Indochina, the story centers around British journalist Thomas Fowler (Michael Redgrave) and a character known only as "The American" (Audie Murphy). As the country is gripped ever-tighter by the Communist uprising, the coupling find themselves in a battle over both their personal beliefs, and a woman whom they both desire and whose views they wish to mould into their own. Suspicion and intrigue ensue, with the two men doubting each others motives, and Mankiewicz allowing the film to burn slowly towards a surprising conclusion.

Rating 4.0 The Quiet American Movie Lover: from VANCOUVER, WA US -- August, 20, 2010

This is a very good companion to the more recently made version of the same title and subject matter. I really liked this one better but they both portrayed a very real time in history and is a good insight which drove America into the war in Vietnam. A very good script and well acted this takes you into what was Vietnam before our involovement in combat. Full of intrigue with lots of twist and turns. It really brought the sounds and smell of the country back.
