The Third Man
In honor of Princeton Summer Theater's production of Paula Vogel's play The Baltimore Waltz, a film-noir inspired portrait of two siblings' adventures through Europe, we invite you to come see a special screening of "The Third Man," what the British Film Institute named as the "Greatest British Film of All Time!" and Martin Scorcese called, "The Best Revelation in All of Cinema!"


"In rubble-strewn postwar Vienna, its occupation divided among four powers, Joseph Cottens pulp Western writer Holly Martins arrives to meet up with his old friend Harry Lime, only to find that hes dead  or is he? And as the supremely na├»ve Cotten, a monoglot stranger in a strange land, descends through the levels of deception, and as he discovers his own friends corruption, the moral choices loom. A triumph of atmosphere  with its Vienna locations (including the gigantic Riesenrad ferris wheel and the dripping sewers), its tilted camera angels, its Robert Krasker-shot shadows, and Anton Karass unforgettable zither theme  and with its stars in perhaps their most iconic roles: bereted Trevor Howard at his most Britishly military; Alida Valli, here truly enigmatic and Garboesque; and Welles Harry Lime, arriving in one of the greatest star entrances ever, and adding the famous cuckoo clock speech to Greenes original script, with the whole topped by its legendary, almost endlessly drawn-out finale shot. Three Oscar nominations: for director Reed, editor Oswald Hafenrichter, and cinematographer Krasker, with a win for the latter; the Grand Prize at Cannes; and the only film on both the AFI and BFI Top 100 lists of, respectively, the greatest American and British films (#1 for the Brits), as well as being named The Greatest Foreign Film of All Time by the Japanese!"
