There’s more than one reason this trailer for The Third Man is a classic. It sets up the atmosphere of the film very well. It gives us the central mystery of the movie without giving away too much. Most of all, it highlights one of the most striking features of the film itself -its original score by Anton Karas.
“He’ll have you in a dither with his zither”? Yeah, you really don’t see lines like that come along very often, but in this case it’s true.
So what do you think? Does this trailer make you want to see the movie? And do you know of any really good trailers? Or are there any classic films you’d like to see trailers for? Let me know in the comment below.
Until next time, Happy Viewing!
