Blacklisted helmer Jules Dassin’s 1955 film “Rififi” was re-released in Gotham this past weekend, breaking Film Forum’s house record set for a revival by earning $18,000 in three days. Pic created a controversy with its depiction of drug addict and of the criminal underworld.

“We’re thrilled about the reception for ‘Rififi,’ as this is the least-known of the classics we’ve handled,” said Bruce Goldstein, founder of Rialto Pictures, which released the film. “We’re pleased for Mr. Dassin, who helped us in so many ways with the re-release.”

“Rififi” is set to open at the AFI Theater in Washington, D.C., in late August and at L.A.’s Nuart in October.
