Summer Film Classics: Orson Welles, Renaissance Man: The Third Man
Not rated, 93 min. Directed by Carol Reed., Starring Joseph Cotten, Orson Welles, Trevor Howard and Alida Valli.
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.)
