All film is collaborative, but 'The Third Man' is unusually so. Bringing together a legendary set of international contributors, the film is marked by a mixture of artistic temperaments and styles. The unique combination of circumstance, accident, and artistic vision make it compelling. Often considered one of the greatest films, 'The Third Man' is also an exemplar of how the collaborative process in filmmaking engenders meaning.
