For Immediate Release

August 12, 2002

The 1949 classic film The Third Man will be screened at the Clark Art Institute on Friday, August 23, at 4:00 p.m. Directed by Carol Reed and written by Graham Green, the film stars Joseph Cotton and Orson Welles. The story follows the despicable Harry Lime through the shadows, sewers, and moral rubble of occupied Vienna, set to the haunting zither score by composer Anton Karas. Admission to the film is free.

The Third Man is part of the film series "Projections of Vienna," offered every Friday at 4:00 p.m. throughout Gustav Klimt Landscapes and the other Vienna Project exhibitions on view at the Clark through September 2. The series looks at the capital of Austria from a variety of angles and mixes classics of world cinema with popular movies from the silent film era to today. The series will conclude with Before Sunrise (1994, 101 minutes) on August 30. The Clark's Vienna exhibitions and film series are part of "The Vienna Project," a six-month series of exhibitions, programs, and special events celebrating the rich and vibrant art and culture of Vienna in the beautiful setting of the Berkshire hills of western Massachusetts.

The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts.  The galleries are open daily 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  Admission to the galleries is $10 (members, students, and children free).
