Link: The Lives of Harry Lime

[The Lives of Harry Lime][hl] is available on Archive.org. Produced by the BBC, I believe, Orson Wells reprised the role of Harry Lime from his 1949 adaptation of Graham Greene’s novel _The Third Man_. The film is a personal favorite of mine — along with _The Gray Fox_ and _Local Hero_ — and I look forward to spending some time with the audio series: 52 half-hour episodes are available.

One of the things I want to do after the book is done is get together with some talented people and write some audio plays. I think it’s a genre that is overdue for a renaissance, and I think it would be fun to work as a group, perhaps writing alone but then coming together to read the texts live, record them, and release them on the web. Who am I thinking of? Josh Caffery, for a start, as one of the most talented writers I know, but also Reese Fuller, who I know less well, but has to have chops. Perhaps Conni Castille would be interested. Very talented, but I am not sure if she is interested in writing outside of film. Kristi Guillory always amazes me, but again, it may be she is more a song writer than a story writer. I’m sure there are others, but these are the people that come to me in the moment.
