Description

"This guide scores well on all points—well-prepared and helpful."—In the Picture

A British cinema classic reinterpreted for twenty-first century students of film and media studies. On its release in 1949, The Third Man received near-universal acclaim, and its reputation is, if anything, even higher today—it was voted the Best British Film by a British Film Institute poll of critics and film-makers in 1999. Studying The Third Man applies the key concepts of film and media studies to the film and considers:
The complex Anglo-American production process Whether it is a genre film or indeed 'genre defying' The ideology behind the film, and whether this has contributed to its lasting appeal The distinctive application of film-making techniques, with numerous illustrated examples Critical responses to the film Ways in which the The Third Man can be used to introduce students to black and white film
