Summer Fun 2014




Summer Film Classics: Orson Welles, Renaissance Man: The Third Man

Based on a story by Graham Greene, the movie is a noir classic set in a shadowy postwar Vienna. It’s one of Welles’ best-remembered roles, and the film’s now-familiar zither music sets the story’s ambiguous tone perfectly. (Double Bill: Citizen Kane.) Read a full review of The Third Man.
