Movie Haiku:Personal Best for everyone involved including screenwriter Graham Greene & composer Anton Karas (indeed, Welles is more mesmerizing as an actor here than he is in CITIZEN KANE). Noir classic set in the corrupt madness of Post-WWII Vienna. Holly Martins (Cotton) arrives na´ve, then learns the hard way, step-by-step.
