'The Third Man' has consistently been regarded as one of the best films ever produced. Arguably, the best. Why that is - is debatable: is it on account of - the script, the acting, the casting, the camera work, the locations, the storyline, the musical score - or because all these blend together to create a truly memorable well-crafted film packed with originality and atmosphere?
So clearly a DVD of such a masterpiece - is a necessity. But there are those occasions when it just isn't possible to sit down, put your feet up and travel back in time to post-war Vienna. So what do you do instead? Buy (and play) this CD of course! Treat yourself to Anton Karas's zither music, picture yourself in the 'Cafe Mozart', or perhaps the 'Smolka Bar' or in the Prater. And best of all you don't just get to hear the music - but various interludes of dialogue too! A few snippets of Harry, Anna, Calloway or Martins or whoever - talking..a real reminder of this superb film.
If it is felt that the dialogue isn't worth hearing (and there are apparently some who feel that way), then really this film isn't worth watching! Assuming you do feel it's worth it (and it is..) then sit back, re-live those black-market days and wonder as ever, what did happen next?
