The Third Man: Film Noir Classic on YouTube

Graham Greene wrote the screenplay; Orson Welles played a starring role; and Carol Reed, an Oscar-winning filmmaker, sat in the director’s chair. A recipe for a classic noir film, to be sure. And the movie didn’t disappoint.

The Third Man won the Grand Prix at the 1949 Cannes Film Festival and an Academy Award for Best Black and White Cinematography in 1950. A half century later, The Third Man proved that it stands the test of time when the British Film Institute named it the best British film of the 20th century. Quite a statement.

Running 104 minutes, The Third Man (now available on YouTube here) is listed in our collection of Free Noir films and our big collection of Free Online Movies. You’ll find over 340 films (mostly fine ones) on the list…

    Any chance the genesis of this post was tryin to figure out which Orson Welles movie Anthony Bourdain was talking about on Monday night? Trying to prove/disprove the weird synchronicity/coincidence of this movie showin up on my screen so often lately.

    Cool movie! Some years ago I visited a museum in Vienna showing me some background details about the movie. There were also guided tours to the sets of the movie.

    Better still – go to see it at the Burg Kino in Vienna, where it’s shown every Friday night
