In the film noir classic The Third Man, Orson Welles played Harry Lime - rouge, scoundrel, and black marketeer in postwar Vienna. At the end of the film, in a spectacular chase through the sewers of the city, Harry met his end. But in radio's first prequel, Welles resumed the role in The Lives of Harry Lime, a series produced in England by Harry Alan Towers.
Volume 2 present Lime's criminal adventures before he met his doom - bank heists, confidence schemes, swindles, and such, in a series of witty and well written lighthearted dramas featuring Welles and a virtual stock company of talented actors in adventures set in such exotic locales as Paris, Venice, Tangiers, and the French Riviera.
