The Third Man

Posted by Web Manager on July 30, 2008

Carol Reed 1949

THE THIRD MAN is about as rad as anything from 1940s England can be. My friend Tom Lindsay, who edited EAST RIVER , recommended it to me, calling it one of his all time favorites. Its not one of my all time favorites. So if you’re looking to see a guaranteed awesome no matter what kind of movie, I don’t know – see TOP GUN. But if you want to see a very 40’s Graham Greeney (he wrote the script) intrigue set in interwar Vienna (sounds good so far) with an incredible cast including Orson Welles (not bad), and gorgeously shot on location in Vienna (aside from the sewers, because after one day down there, Orson Welles refused to return and insisted they build sets, which they eventually did in England afterwards), well then you’re in for a goddamn treat.
