fantastic
29 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary was sock-o! I love "The Third Man," and the insight given by this documentary was tremendous. Not only was the narration great, but the scenes of post-war Vienna were staggering. (In Vienna today, one can actually take a "Third Man" tour.) The background of the Selznick-Korda conflict, the description of how the zither music was decided upon, the tour of the tunnels, how the silhouettes were created, the cat at Harry's shoes -- all wonderful information.

Being a huge Orson Welles fan, I loved the stories about Welles. But my favorite story was the one about how the name Paul Horbiger opened the doors of Vienna to the producers, where the names Orson Welles, Alida Valli, and David Selznick did nothing! This is a must see.
