“A rescued gem…a black-and-white thriller…the 3-D flick that most exploits the short-lived medium.” —The Village Voice

“Highly effective…thematically working through the protagonists’s mood of paranoia and fatalism to his regaining of self-control…the stereoscopic imagery underscores this narrative progression.” —Ray Zone, 3-D Film Noir of the 1950s

The first 3-D motion picture produced by a major studio, Man in the Dark (1953) is a classic film noir, complete with tough-guy protagonist (Edmond O’Brien), heart-of-gold moll (Audrey Totter), and plenty of underworld action—but with handsome stereoscopic imagery directed by the prolific Lew Landers (The Raven). Focusing on a thug who undergoes brain surgery to eliminate his criminal tendencies, the film utilizes spectacular 3-D effects to simulate the newly decent hero’s disorientation as he tries to remember his life of crime, even as he is pursued by former cohorts who want in on the spoils of his latest robbery.

Beautifully restored, sharp 2-D HD picture. The 3-D has some issues regarding vertical misalignment. More careful 3-D restoration would have been a good thing. All in all I'D recommend the disc to the serious movie collector, for watching MITD is like travelling back in time, because there are so many "every day scenes", that have a documentary look, and the HD image adds hugely. I've enjoyed watching MITD a lot.
