        There were two versions of the Quiet American, neither of which measure up to one of the best films of all time.

        Besides, While I love Michael Caine, I don't like Graham Greene

          I don't like green either. I don't care for yellow that much either.

            Again, as with The Manchurian Candidate, Casablanca is one of the best movies ever made. I like Michael Caine too, but this was a no-brainer!

                The fundamental things apply to this vote. Give me Bogey over Michael(I don't care how bad the script is, I want to be the star)Caine.

                        Of all the movies The Quiet American could come up against in the 1st round! I love the movie and thought that Caine and Frazier were great in it, but I gotta go with Casablanca. It's one of my saturday afternoon go-to movies.

                          Casablanca. I think this movie will be there as we get close to the all-time best. Great flick!
