    Harry Lime led many lives, most of which would be unpalatable to a midcentury radio audience. In this lost episode, our rakishly amoral hero assists a war criminal settling into a new life in South America, causing all manner of mischief in the process.

    Movie Prompt: The Third Man (1949)
    Movie Summary:
    Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten) arrives in a Vienna still shattered by WWII, expecting to meet his old friend Harry Lime. But Lime has apparently been accidentally killed, and Martins, too curious for his own good, hears contradictory stories about the circumstances of Lime’s death. Witnesses disappear or are murdered. Martins himself is chased by unknown assailants through the glamorously dark streets of Vienna. Complicating matters are the sardonic Major Calloway (Trevor Howard), head of the British forces, and Lime’s mistress, Anna Schmidt (Alida Valli).
