"Harvey" (1950), directed by Henry Koster. 104 minutes. No rating. Elwood P. Dowd's best friend is a 6-foot-tall rabbit named Harvey that no one else can see. Is he crazy? Not as crazy as those of us who overlook the wondrous because we're too focused on the mundane.

"The Crimson Pirate" (1952), directed by Robert Siodmak. 104 minutes. No rating. A spoof of all those Errol Flynn pirate movies. The pirates say "Arrrgh!" a lot and tend to get their peg-legs stuck in the grills over the hatches. And this time it's Burt Lancaster, who gets to be gallant as hell.

"The Third Man" (1949), directed by Carol Reed. 100 minutes. No rating. An American comes to postwar Vienna to discover a friend has been murdered, and he winds up learning a little about love and loyalty--too late, alas, to help himself. With Joseph Cotten, Orson Welles, a script by Graham Greene that is a marvel of wit and intelligence, and some great zither music.
