Directed by Carol Reed (93 minutes)

An American writer (Joseph Cotten) arrives in Vienna to take a job with his old school chum, Harry Lime (Orson Welles). He soon discovers that Lyme has been killed, but no one can tell him how or why. And who was the mysterious third man who carried his dead friend’s body? The shadowy ambiguity of post-war Vienna is accurately evoked by the unforgettable strains of Anton Karas’ zither. Terry Meehan continues his new series, Music and its Impact on the Movies introducing each film with an original video followed by audience reaction and a lively discussion.
