One of the greatest British thrillers of the post-war era, in the last 50 years The Third Man has emerged as a classic, even topping the British Film Institute Top 100 List. Directed by Carol Reed, and produced by Alexander Korda and David O Selznick, this clever mystery tale of a love triangle with nightmarish suspense, treachery, betrayal, guilt and disillusionment, was Reed's second collaboration with screenwriter Graham Greene. Reed discovered Anton Karas performing on his zither in a Viennese tavern and immediately envisaged this as the perfect music score for The Third Man – the music of the street corner, sidewalk café and once proud boulevards. Though without experience in film scoring, Karas proved to be a talented melodist with an excellent understanding of the then contemporary street sounds of Vienna. He came up with what's today known as The Third Man signature tune – the brilliant "Harry Lime Theme" whose nonchalant swagger became one of the great cinema score classics. Playing the theme on this record is Gertrud Huber, the acclaimed soloist from Bavaria.
