The first major restoration of the classic film noir from Carol Reed
The Third Man
Wednesday, September 16th at 7:30pm
In post-war Vienna, Holly Martins (Joseph Cotton) arrives to meet up with his old friend Harry Lime, only to find that he's dead - or is he? As a stranger in a strange land, he descends through levels of deception, and as he discovers his own friend's corruption, the moral choices loom.
The Third Man is a triumph of atmosphere, with its stars in perhaps their most iconic roles: Trevor Howard at his most Britishly military; Alida Valli, here truly enigmatic and Garboesque; and Orson Welle's Harry Lime, arriving in one of the greatest star entrances ever.
Three Oscar nominations: direction (Carol Reed), editing, cinematography; the Grand Prize at Cannes. Screenplay by Graham Greene.
"One great scene after another! One great shot after another! I've seen it 50 times and it's still magic." — Roger Ebert
