The Third Man

They don't even make posters like that anymore...



Some viewing tips. Anton Karas, who supplied the famous score of the film, is playing the same zither tune.



And the original trailer of the film.



And this trailer with the modern Hollywoodian voice-over but the visuals are more striking.

Sadly, film posters are dead.

You know what else is dead? Those lobby cards in theatres. Remember entering a theatre in India and and looking at those cards on the wall and trying to guess the story?

antonia: yeah, i love those low-key abstract/expressionist designs.

km: now the publicity machine ensures that you know exactly what you are going to get in theatres. we go there even then.
