"But what makes this edition stand out is the 4K remaster.
Having seen the previous disc release of The Third Man we had something to compare to, and it is simply shocking how long the film has gone without a patch job. The film has been cured of cracks, cuts, dirt and anything else that didn’t belong on the film in the first place. This new restoration is covered in detail on one of the extras. And it is made clear that the primary focus was on cleaning the image. It is also made as clear that the restoration job was not focusing on any of the grain that may bother some more modern users looking for the sharpest image possible with the smoothest surfaces."
