It’s a Classic presents The Third Man (1949)

16th September 2022 - 16th September 2022

It's a Classic presents The Third Man (1949) An out-of-work pulp fiction novelist, Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten), arrives in post-war Vienna. A city divided into sectors by the victorious allies, with a flourishing black market. He arrives at the invitation of an ex-school friend, Harry Lime (Orson Welles), who has offered him a job, only to discover that Lime has recently died in a peculiar traffic accident. From talking to Lime's friends and associates, Martins soon notices that some of the stories are inconsistent, and determines to discover what really happened to Harry Lime. Directed by legendary British director Carol Reed and boasting arguably Welles’ best performance, it is truly a sight worth seeing on the big screen. Your host will be Sam Judd.
