Carol Reed’s Restored ‘The Third Man’ Set for U.S. Release

New York-based distributor Rialto Pictures is releasing a 4K restoration of Carol Reed’s “The Third Man,” starring Orson Welles, in the U.S. this summer.

Rialto made the announcement on the eve of Welles’ 100th birthday. “The Third Man” restoration will premiere this month in the classics section of the Cannes Film Festival.

The U.S. opening has been set for New York’s Film Forum on June 26 for a two-week run, followed by the Nuart in Los Angeles on July 3. Engagements in San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Seattle, Philadelphia and other major markets will follow.

“The Third Man,” produced by Alexander Korda and David O. Selznick, was Reed’s second teaming with novelist-screenwriter Graham Greene. The film, set in Allied-occupied Vienna, also starred Joseph Cotten and Alida Valli.

It won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, the British Film Academy’s best British film award and an Academy Award for Robert Krasker’s cinematography. Anton Karas’ score was played entirely on a zither, and the theme song was the most popular international title in 1950.

Deluxe Restoration carried out the new 4K digital restoration on behalf of Studiocanal.
