THE THIRD MAN starring Michael Rennie ALL NEW 53 SHOWS

The series was based on the 1949 film noir The Third Man starring Orson Welles. The character was changed from a criminal into a sort of "thief with a conscience" for the subsequent popular 1951 radio series, "The Lives of Harry Lime" (also starring Welles). The TV series changes the premise that Harry Lime died at the end of the movie, and morphs him from a criminal into a much less ambiguous, more sympathetic, man with a conscience.

The Third Man was an early private detective show. Harry Lime is an international man of mystery - unruffable, handsome, and witty, who lives on the edge of danger. Bradford Webster is the conservative treasurer of his corporations

In this 1959 syndicated TV version, Michael Rennie (The Day The Earth Stood Still) is commanding as jet-setting, private investigator Harry Lime who travels Europe falling in and out of trouble. The show co-stars the wonderful Jonathan Harris as Lime's dour, no nonsense sidekick Bradford Webster. Harris, you may remember, was the villainous Dr. Smith on Lost In Space. He's cold and analytical here, always a joy to watch.
This half-hour drama was filmed on location which makes for some stunning exterior shots of European nations on the rebound from World War II
This is a rare television series, rarely ever seen after its initial run (1959-1962).  The show aired in the United States on NBC, and was a joint production of BBC Television, the National Telefilm Associates of America, and the British Lion Film Corporation. This 53 episode set is a rare set that came from 16 MM prints.
