The first thing that pops to mind is "1941" with Dan Akroyd and John Belushi.

I don't know either of those. The one I hand in mind was, I thought, pretty famous. It stars two well-known Americans, though it's another old British film.

Here's another clue. The lighting and time of day are very wrong, because this was a few minutes ago in my garden. Think dark, moonlit city streets with deep shadows...

My wife thinks it is "The Third Man" with Orson Wells.

Yes! She's a clever lady. It's a 1949 Carol (a man) Reed film from Graham Greene's screenplay from his novel.

The evil racketeer Harry Lime, played by Welles,meets his old friend, the entertainingly named Holly Martins, played by Joseph Cotten, high above the ground on Vienna's giant Ferris Wheel. At the end Lime is tracked down, chased through the Viennese sewers at night, and shot & killed as he tries to climb out of a manhole.

It was once voted the best British film ever by the British Film Institute, and made 57th on a list of best American films ever, though its only US connection was Selznick as an executive producer. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Third_Man.

Sorry everyone, I've been working on the movie plot and not on its title.I now remember the rules, especially having reread them.
