Mystery Movie 

When: Fri., Aug. 14 2015
Named one of the greatest films of all time by various film organizations, The Third Man uncovered the formula for a perfect mystery that all others could follow. The film debuted in 1949 and stars Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles, who are both well-known for their work in Citizen Kane, as well as Alida Valli, who appeared in more than 100 pictures including Alfred Hitchcock’s The Paradine Case. Set in post-WWII Germany, it centers on a pulp fiction writer named Holly Martins (played by Cotton) seeks to join his friend (played by Welles) who has offered him a job, only to discover that same friend’s sudden death. This sudden revelation means a change of plans for Holly and he decides to investigate the death, unaware of the shocking revelations that he would soon uncover about the life of a friend he thought he knew. Widely praised for performances of the cast, the film is also celebrated for its distinctive camera angles associated with the film noir genre and its famous score, which only featured one instrument, the zither. It screens at 9 tonight and at 7:10 p.m. tomorrow at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Manno)
