Failed novelist Holly Martins arrives in Vienna to meet his good chum, Harry Lime, only to find the poor chap dead as a doornail and his reputation besmirched by vile allegations. Determined to clear his pal’s good name, Holly ignores the advice of two British Army police officers – Major Calloway and Sergeant Paine – to hunt down the elusive ‘third man’ spotted at the scene of the crime. In the process, Holly becomes entangled in a web of murder and intrigue that puts his pulp fictions to shame.
