The Renaissance And The Cuckoo Clock

From The Third Man (1948) directed by Carol Reed and starring Orson Welles, as Harry Lime, smuggler and seller of ersatz penicillin in the post-World War II rubble of Vienna (where it was filmed) and also possibly a murderer, and Joseph Cotton as Holly Martins his naive friend who comes from America to find him.  In this scene, near the end of the movie, Holly finally meets Harry who enlightens him on his cynical view of human progress. 

A movie worth seeing.  Great dialogue and acting along with striking black and white cinematography and a memorable score which you can hear on this clip.
