The Quiet American (1958) DVD9
Based on the novel by Graham Greene, "The Quiet American". It's a political thriller that combines a passionate love triangle with some cloak-and-dagger intrigue and a prescient grasp of the dangers that Vietnam would bring America.

When an idealistic young American (Murphy) arrives in Saigon, his presence causes all kinds of rumours. Is he a spy, a philanthropist, or just another Yankee businessman? British war correspondent Fowler (Redgrave) doesn't know for certain, but the American's talk of a "third force" that will offer the Vietnamese the right to choose between French colonial rule and Communism sounds suspect. Even more worrying, though, is his interest in Fowler's Vietnamese girlfriend Phuong (Hai Yen Do) who he's quite openly making a play for.
