    The Third Man. Second Draft Script.

    Second draft script. The in-house mimeographed script of the American adaptation as produced by David O. Selznick. Greene originally developed The Third Man as a film treatment in association with Alexander Korda and Selznick. Friction between the parties led to battles which would impact considerably on the finished film. These arguments were mostly due to Selznick's somewhat paranoid views regarding homosexuality, anti-Americanism and perversely Greene's casting of the central characters as British. Learn More
