Der dritte Mann ( Visual )
30 editions published between 1949 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Atmosphärisch überaus dichte Verfilmung des gleichnamigen Kriminalromans von Graham Greene, von dem auch das Drehbuch stammt. Carol Reed nutzte die Expressivität des zerbombten Wiens, um eine düstere Grundstimmung zu schaffen, in der sich Joseph Cotton und Orson Welles als ehemalige Freunde gegenüberstehen (wobei letzterer erst in der zweiten Hälfte des Films in Erscheinung tritt). Neben der spektakulären Kameraführung trug auch die berühmt gewordene Zither-Musik Anton Karas' dazu bei, daß "Der Dritte Mann" zu einem Klassiker wurde. [mediabiz.de]
