The Third Man

 Sunday afternoon, we went to the Burg Kino to see The Third Man.  Graham Greene had a premis for a movie: a man sees his dead friend walking in the street.  Then, he was commissioned to write a movie about post-war Vienna.  He put both concepts together to create The Third Man.  It was a black and white movie, but Dave only fell asleep once.  Our favorite quote of the movies is this one (from Harry Lime, the dead man walking):  “Don’t be so gloomy.  After all, it’s not that awful.  Like the fella says, in Italy for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, terror, murder, and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance.  In Switzerland, they had brotherly love – they had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did they produce? The cuckoo clock.”
