The Third Man (Drury @ The Moxie)

Starring: Orson Welles,Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli Director: Carol Reed Genre(s): Classics , Mystery & Suspense Rating: NR

Great insights to great films courtesy of Drury’s Humanities faculty. This series is made possible by a grant from the [Missouri Humanities Council]( The Third Man (1949): Pulp novelist Holly Martins travels to shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, black-market opportunist Harry Lime—and thus begins this legendary tale of love, deception, and murder. Thanks to brilliant performances by Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, and Orson Welles; Anton Karas’s evocative zither score; Graham Greene’s razor-sharp dialogue; and Robert Krasker’s dramatic use of light and shadow, The Third Man, directed by the inimitable Carol Reed, only grows in stature as the years pass. [Criterion] Drury University professor Dr. Kevin Henderson will lead a post show discussion after the film.
