The Third Man. The greatest British film ever made and the 57th best American film ever made. It also has the honour of being the 16th 101 Films You Should Have Seen (Probably) podcast. Who is The Third Man? Well you won’t find out here as Lewis and Ian go to great pains to not spoil the plot; instead they discuss Sir James Bond, Bernard Lee as Sgt. Paine, zithers getting us into dithers, Post-War Vienna being divided into Russian, American, French, British, Autobot and Decepticon sectors, and Zardoz-based youth gangs.
Without further ado, here’s this week’s feature presentation… Click below:
