The Third Man

Spin Street had the Criterion edition of The Third Man in stock the last time I was there, and The Sons picked it for tonight. I'm sorry I hadn't seen this film before. Graham Greene wrote the screenplay. Starring are Joseph Cotton, Trevor Howard and Orson Welles. The Third Man is 3rd on imdb's list of top films noir and was on the last AFI Top 100 list but was removed from this one due to its lack of sufficient American credentials.

It has been much discussed and reviewed:
