The Third Man (1949)
British director Carol Reed’s film noir was set in post-World War II Vienna and starred Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Orson Welles, and Trevor Howard. Considered one of the greatest films of all time, The Third Man is celebrated for its acting, cinematography, and musical score. Viennese zitherist Anton Karas wrote and performed the score, using only the zither. In 1950 the film’s title music “The Third Man Theme” topped the music charts and Anton Karas became an international star.
