Orson Welles Conducts an Acting Clinic in "The Third Man"1949), directed by Carol Reed for London Film Productions from a story and screenplay by Graham Greene. Sure, you have many, many other screen classics. But this is the best film noir ever made. It is the best of its kind. In terms of overall quality, "The Third Man" is right up there with "Casablanca" or "Gone With the Wind" or any classic film you care to name.
|You know too much...|
|Come on, old man, have some hing to drink|
|Best entrance in film history|
|The Ferris Wheel looms in the background....|
|Suddenly it is nearer, and more menacing|
|A very power ful shot|
|Film noir at its best|
|Alida Valli plays a haunted character|
|Maybe this time she'll stop....|
Below is the classic ending scene.
