THE THIRD MAN HAS BEEN SELECTED FOR CANNES CLASSICS AND WILL BE SCREENED IN NEW RESTORED 4K VERSION

05/04/2015

To celebrate Orson Welles’s 100th birthday in 2015, STUDIOCANAL restored in (or “into”) 4k the film that features his most renowned role. Starring Joseph Cotton, Alida Valli, Trevor Howard, the restored version of Carol Reed’s masterpiece has been selected for Cannes Classics 2015.

THE THIRD MAN underwent a 4K restoration (based on a 4K scan) handled by the Deluxe laboratory in the UK on behalf of STUDIOCANAL. After a rigorous comparison of different available elements, the 4k scan was done from a fine grain master positive struck from the original negative. Release prints were used as a reference for the grade. After bringing home the Golden Palm in 1949, the film is returning to Cannes in 2015 to be part of the Cannes Classics selection.

Set in 1949, Holly Martins, an American writer of westerns, arrives in post-war Vienna to visit his old friend Harry Lime. Upon his arrival, he learns that his friend has been killed in a street accident. When he meets Calloway, chief of the British Military Police in Vienna, he is informed that Harry was in fact active in the black market and wanted by the police. He decides to prove Harry’s innocence, but is Harry really dead?

STUDIOCANAL will release the film in theaters on June 26th in the UK and in the US, July 8th in France, and during the summer in Germany. New DVD and Blu-ray editions will also be released following the film’s theatrical run.
