The Third Man
Sat Apr 28: 4.00pm
** Local Orson Welles scholar and actor Erik Van Beuzekom will introduce this screening of The Third Man! **
This screening is in support of Erik Van Beuzekoms performance of the one-man show Rosebud: The Lives of Orson Welles at the Third Man Museum in Vienna on May 5th and 6th, 2018.
Pulp novelist Holly Martins travels to shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, black-market opportunist Harry Limeand thus begins this legendary tale of love, deception, and murder. Thanks to brilliant performances by Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, and Orson Welles; Anton Karass evocative zither score; Graham Greenes razor-sharp dialogue; and Robert Kraskers dramatic use of light and shadow, The Third Man, directed by the inimitable Carol Reed, only grows in stature as the years pass.
