    I was hoping the "Original MacGuffin" would be one of the reasons! I think this is the first time the word is used in film. Thanks for reminding us of this truly great movie.

    1) One of the great 'wrong man' films. 2) The great twists and turns. 3) The supplements of the upcoming re-release.

    Another film I first saw in 16mm format and showed to my film students in the 80s. I watched it at least 39 times. Three reasons? 1.

That helicopter! 3. The "McCrocodile" speech.
