By Ao. Univ.-Prof. Dr. Murray G. Hall

If one thinks of Vienna and music, one spontaneously thinks of the Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss or else the Radetzky March by Johann Strauss the Elder. But Vienna is just as much associated with the Harry Lime Theme from the 1949 film classic "The Third Man". Brigitte Timmermann and Frederick Baker tell all about the making of the movie and the people involved - including the young Viennese musician who sparked off "zithermania" … in their book called "The Third Man. In the Footsteps of a film classic".
