TRACK DOWN VI­ENNA’S THIRD MAN MU­SEUM

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE -

“Ev­ery­one should go care­ful in Vi­enna.” If you recog­nise Popescu’s ad­vice to Holly Martins, here’s a not-to-be­missed ex­tra to add to the city’s at­trac­tions.

Fur­ther to Nick Trend’s piece (“The city with the win­ter wow fac­tor”, Nov 3), tucked away in the nar­row back streets close to the Naschmarkt can be found the Third Man Mu­seum – a steadily grow­ing pri­vate col­lec­tion of mem­o­ra­bilia re­lat­ing to Carol Reed’s film from the late For­ties.

From orig­i­nal pro­duc­tion scripts and mu­sic to ex­cerpts screened on vin­tage film pro­jec­tors, we en­joyed a fas­ci­nat­ing glimpse be­hind the cam­era, con­clud­ing with an exit through a makeshift sewer. As­sem­bled by Ger­hard Strass­gschwandt­ner and his wife, Karin, this ex­ten­sive dis­play brings home the po­lit­i­cal re­al­i­ties of post­war Vi­en­nese life within the di­vided city. Open­ing hours vary, but it’s well worth track­ing down.

of $14 per ap­pli­ca­tion had been re­ceived. Two days later I dis­cov­ered that I had been charged a to­tal of £159.74. For three days I at­tempted, via the bank and the firm who had dealt with my ap­pli­ca­tion, to get my money back. As the firm stated, the small print was there, at the very end of the ap­pli­ca­tion, in­form­ing it was a third-party of­fer­ing a charge­able ser­vice. I have read that gov­ern­ments are aware that th­ese sites ex­ist, but they are not il­le­gal. BAR­RIE HOWARD
