The Third Man Trivia


There were four episodes of The Third Man that were produced but not broadcast. Their titles were, "The Trial of Harry Lime", "Proxy Fight", "Members Only - Part 1", and "Members Only - Part 2".

The Third Man was inspired by a novel titled, "The Third Man" written by author Graham Greene. There was also a Third Man movie in 1950 starring Orson Welles as Harry Lime. In both the novel and the film, Harry Lime was a double-dealing swindler whose only positive feature was that he tended to swindle only other low-life characters. The TV show did mention that Harry had a dark past but generally depicted him as a good guy!

You may think that you've never heard of either one of the stars of The Third Man but you probably have seen them elsewhere. They both had full careers with numerous TV and movie roles to their credits. Michael Rennie is undoubtedly best known for his role as the alien visitor to Earth named "Klaatu" in the 1951 sci-fi classic film, "The Day the Earth Stood Still". Interestingly, Jonathan Harris' most remembered role is also as a sci-fi character named "Dr. Zachary Smith" on the hit 1965-1968 TV series, "Lost In Space".
