The Third Man, Carol Reed’s film noir masterpiece returns to cinemas to celebrate its 70th Anniversary for a one-day special UK-wide release on Sunday 29th September.

To celebrate this special cinema release, we are offering one lucky winner the chance to take home three British classics on Blu-ray: Brighton Rock, The Fallen Idol and Kind Hearts and Coronets. The winner will also take home a brand-new The Third Man poster (designed specially for this 70th anniversary release).

The Third Man stars Joseph Cotten (Citizen Kane) as Holly Martins, a naïve writer of pulp westerns, who arrives in a bombed-out, post-war Vienna to meet his childhood friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles), only to find that Lime has apparently been killed in a suspicious accident. Martins, too curious for his own good, hears contradictory stories about the circumstances of Lime’s death, and as witnesses begin to disappear he soon finds himself chased by unknown assailants.

Complicating matters are the sardonic Major Calloway (Trevor Howard, Brief Encounter), head of the British forces, and Lime’s stage actress mistress, Anna Schmidt (Alida Valli). Will Martin’s curiosity lead him to discover things about his old friend that he’d rather not know?

The film, showing in stunning 4K, will be followed by a filmed Q&A hosted by Matthew Sweet with Angela Allen, the script supervisor on the production and special guest and fan of the film, director and screenwriter Hossein Amini (The Wings of the Dove, The Two Faces of January). A filmed musical performance from Cornelia Mayer, a Viennese zither player who trained with Anton Karas (the composer and performer of the iconic original soundtrack) will also be shown.

Studiocanal’s ‘Vintage Classics collection’ – showcases iconic British films, all fully restored and featuring brand new extra content.
