THE LIVES OF HARRY LIME was the radio follow-up to the movie THE THIRD MAN, a black and white classic 1949 film by screenwriter Graham Greene. Harry Lime, in the movie, is a manipulative black market drug dealer. In the radio series, his role is expanded to con-artist extrodinaire, who tackles almost anything illegal, with someone else always getting caught. The movie accentuated Lime's black side and the viewer feels little sympathy at his demise. The radio version of Harry Lime portrays him in a lighter touch. You know he's bad but you can't help liking him.
