UK, 1949

70 years from its initial release we present one of British cinema's most enduring and atmospheric thrillers. Directed by Carol Reed, it boasts outstanding performances from Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles. As powerful and original now as it was in 1949.

"This handsomely shot black-and-white thriller hasn't aged one bit. Terrific writing, direction and acting never go out of style."

"Set in postwar occupied Vienna, the plot is a corker, littered with memorable moments and played to perfection by an unforgettable cast that's led with distinction by Orson Welles and Joseph Cotten."

"A genuine and endlessly rewatchable classic."
