In The Third Man, pulp novelist Holly Martins travels to a shadowy, postwar Vienna only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend. Featuring a haunting zither score, noteworthy black-and-white cinematography, and some of the best acting performances of the postwar period, this is a Garden Theatre event not to be missed.
