Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles in Carol Reed’s THE THIRD MAN (1949)
Written by Graham Greene

How did Harry Lime die? In this film-noir classic, an American pulp novelist travels to  shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself involved in the mysterious death of an old friend and black-market opportunist. More than a thriller but a tale of existential loss and betrayal, a film wherein location, a devastated Vienna, is as much a player as the characters .  Its hallmarks are a recklessly haunting visual style, and a twisty script with ironic comic touches. Orson Welles makes the most famous entrance in cinema history, and you’ll never forget that  musical score. This was  Roger Ebert’s favorite movie.
