Guardian Clip Joint... oops

I was delighted to discover that I had been published yesterday in The Guardian as part of the weekly Clip Joint series. The article is here.

Sir Carol ReedMuch less satisfying was the immediate realisation (courtesy of a dozen or so comments) that I had filed my copy erroneously, naming David Lean as the director of The Third Man instead of the film's actual director Carol Reed. This is both annoying and embarrassing for lots of reasons, not the least being that I always look up and mentally hat tip Carol Reed's old house on the King's Road whenever I'm passing, as I admire The Third Man very much.
