by Carol Reed

kanal(1949) English director Carol Reed brings Graham Greene's mystery/thriller to life in one of the greatest B&W films to play with light and dark. To create this international hit he brought in the talents of American Orson Welles and his oft co-star Joseph Cotton and mixed in the enigmatic Italian actress Alida Valli and staid English actor Trevor Howard.

An out-of-work pulp fiction novelist, Holly Martins, arrives in a post war Vienna divided into sectors by the victorious allies, and where a shortage of supplies has led to a flourishing black market. He arrives at the invitation of an ex-school friend, Harry Lime, who has offered him a job, only to discover that Lime has recently died in a peculiar traffic accident. From talking to Lime's friends and associates Martins soon notices that some of the stories are inconsistent, and determines to discover what really happened to Harry Lime.
