The Third Man Movie Review

Holly Martins' (Joseph Cotten) best friend got himself jun over and buried... so what's all the mystery about Harry Lime (Orson Welles)? Though he didn't make the film, Welles' thumbprint is all over The Third Man, which reteams Cotten and Welles (Citizen Kane) so very memorably. With its Dutch angles and intriguing score (hey, that's a zither!), The Third Man is memorable even though the twisty plot has become a bit on the tired side, as Martins parades around Vienna playing amateur gumshoe.
