Carol Reed's Classic 'The Third Man' 4K Restoration Official Trailer
"Heard of Harry Lime?" Rialto Pictures has debuted a new trailer for the 4K restoration of Carol Reed's classic film noir The Third Man, which will be premiering as a Cannes Classic selection later this month at the festival in France. This just looks so unbelievably stunning in 4K, all the cinematography is fabulous, it looks gorgeous seeing so much depth in the shadows. The cast includes Orson Welles, Joseph Cotten, Alida Valli, Trevor Howard and Bernard Lee. This is one of those classics that if you haven't ever seen, it's always the right time to watch. Or in this case, catch it on the big screen looking better than ever before.
Trailer for the Cannes Classics 4K restoration of Carol Reed's The Third Man, found via The Playlist:
Pulp novelist Holly Martins travels to shadowy, postwar Vienna, only to find himself investigating the mysterious death of an old friend, black-market opportunist Harry Lime. The Third Man, directed by Carol Reed, was first released in 1949 in France and actually played at the Cannes Film Festival that year (wow!). Rialto Pictures has restored the original 35mm print at full 4K quality and is planning a theatrical re-release this year after the film shows up for a performance in the Cannes Classics section. The Third Man is also in the Criterion Collection and is generally considered one of the best film noir mysteries ever made.
