It is, quite simply, the finest movie ever made. The bare plot of "The Third Man" doesn't seem like much: An American, a writer, comes to postwar Vienna and discovers that his friend has died. As the American unravels the story behind the death, it soon becomes apparent that the man was murdered. The American falls in love and, in the end, learns a little about love and loyalty--too late, alas, to help himself.

Robert Arthur, 83, a youthful-looking actor who had supporting roles in such 1940s and '50s films as "Twelve O'Clock High," "Just for You" and "Hellcats of the Navy," died of congestive heart failure Wednesday at his home in Aberdeen, Wash., said his friend Harold Fairbanks. Also known as Bob, he was born Robert Paul Arthaud on June 18, 1925, in Aberdeen. After high school, he served in the Navy, then went to Hollywood looking for work as an actor.

Stepping into the middle of a dispute between a hillside developer and Pacific Palisades residents, Los Angeles officials have begun erecting a $150,000 safety fence between a cliff and nearby homes. Officials said Tuesday that they took the unusual step of hiring a private contractor to build the wall after developer Nasser Ahdoot failed to meet a deadline last week to construct it himself.

Eva Bartok, colorful Hungarian-born actress who made more than 40 films under several flags in the 1950s and 1960s, including "The Crimson Pirate" opposite Burt Lancaster, has died. She was 69. Bartok, almost as famous for her romantic liaisons as her acting, died Saturday in a London hospital. She reportedly had heart problems.

I refer to your July 5 article "Memos Show Herschensohn Watergate Role." I was in daily touch with Bruce from August, 1973, through 1974 and I am perhaps in a better position to attest to his genuine qualities than the memos cited in the article, with which I take no issue. The memos reflect only the man's duties at the time, which are only in contradiction with a sterling character because of their proximity to the Watergate scandal. To believe Richard Nixon innocent does not disqualify Herschensohn from serving the good people of California in the U.S. Senate.
