The Third Man (1949)

Set in postwar Vienna, Austria, "The Third Man" stars Joseph Cotten as Holly Martins, a writer of pulp Westerns, who arrives penniless as a guest of his childhood chum Harry Lime (Orson Welles), only to find him dead. Martins develops a conspiracy theory after learning of a "third man" present at the time of Harry's death, running into interference from British officer Maj. Calloway (Trevor Howard) and falling head-over-heels for Harry's grief-stricken lover, Anna (Alida Valli).

 

 

Critics Consensus: This atmospheric thriller is one of the undisputed masterpieces of cinema, and boasts iconic performances from Joseph Cotten and Orson Welles.

The Girl who lives down the lane (1974)

 Quiet, withdrawn 13-year-old Rynn Jacobs (Jodie Foster) lives peacefully in her home in a New England beach town. Whenever the prying landlady (Alexis Smith) inquires after Rynn's father, she politely claims that he's in the city on business. But when the landlady's creepy and increasingly persistent son, Frank (Martin Sheen), won't leave Rynn alone, she teams up with kindly neighbor boy Mario (Scott Jacoby) to maintain the dark family secret that she's been keeping to herself.


Review :

In the atmospheric and creepy shocker, The Little Girl Who Lives Down the Lane (1976), Rynn Jacobs (Jodie Foster) is a precocious 13-year-old girl whose poet father has died, leaving her to carry on alone in their isolated seaside house where she reads Emily Dickinson and listens to Chopin.

Fearful that her father's death will result in an unwanted guardianship, Rynn pretends that her father is still alive, telling the kindly local policeman Miglioriti (Mort Shuman) and her cruel landlady Mrs. Hallet (Alexis Smith) that her father is working, or away on business whenever they stop by. But Rynn's secret is most threatened by the lecherous landlady's adult son Frank (Martin Sheen), who has sexual designs on young Rynn.

The one person Rynn is able to confide her secret to is an equally eccentric local boy, the precocious Mario (Scott Jacoby), who even comes to her aid when the anti-Semitic Mrs. Hallet and her son start snooping into Rynn's home life.

This Canadian-French co-production, which was shot in Canada and directed by Hungarian-born director Nicolas Gessner features a chilling, unsettling portrait of American small-town life defined by snobbery, casual racism and the money and influence that allows people like Mrs. Hallet to keep her pedophile son out of jail.
