Third man : the lives of Harry Lime : The Barbary Queen( Recording )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Harry Lime, radio's all-time prince of knaves, was a character created by Graham Greene in his novel of intrigue. The novel became a film in 1949 and shortly thereafter Harry Lime became the hero of a series of syndicated radio shows. In the two episodes recorded here we hear Harry Lime as played by Orson Welles, a double-dealing, conniving, covetous money-grubber. Yet Welles gives us a character likeable, at times even admirable in his deceptions - in short, a swindling con man with a heart of gold, who, in these witty tight-knit stories, somehow always lands on his feet
