Bob, I have a question, how many films do you have, that are being worked on ?
Bob, somehow "thanks" doesn't seem enough -- I truly appreciate all of your hard work and effort in preserving this film and others like it, and getting them back in circulation.
I have to thank Bob as well.
He introduced me to classic 3D in his home.
Got to watch some great stuff in his company.
Now, I just preorder all this classic stuff sight unseen as I think
its vastly superior to most of the crap the studios have been
Thank you for asking. We own some 3-D features and several hours of shorts. The best answer to your question is on the home page of our website: http://www.3dfilmarchive.com
Thank you very much, Josh and Ron. Your kind words are very much appreciated!
I've just put up a new article "Preserving a Lost 3-D Film" which covers the production and restoration of DRAGONFLY SQUADRON. I hope that you find it interesting. http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/home/dragonfly-squadron
I too will buy any Golden Age 3-D film on Blu-ray. I like 3-D, but what passes today as "good" 3-D is astonishing. I saw Dawn of the Planet of the Apes last night, and decided to opt for a 3-D showing after hearing that it was actually shot with 3-D cameras (this seems to be a rarity these days) and after reading this review:
The 3-D was in fact almost non-existant. The stereoscopics were so light that you could almost have watched the film with the glasses off; every time I checked the blur on the screen was very very slight. I hear it was better in IMAX, but honestly if I can have 3-D in the home that has real depth to it, and plenty moments of objects flying past my face, then I don't see why my local mulitplex can't.
Anyway, keep 'em coming Bob, I'll buy 'em all!
Outside of this thread, I know nothing about this film...never heard of it, much less seen it. But I'm going to get a copy anyway simply to support the work that Bob and others have done.
Already in the top 100 (76) of blu-ray dramas on Amazon! Very promising!
How can you check that?
It should be the last line of the product details, Mr. Furmanek.
May I have some more, please?
Alright! 3 weeks till the premiere of the first Golden Age title that was never actually shown in 3d in the 50s! Now available on Olive's website.
Sixty years after it played flat in theaters, DRAGONFLY SQUADRON will be available worldwide in the miracle of third-dimension on Blu-ray. The release date is October 14.We're very proud of the restoration and it was done at a fraction of the cost of what studios have paid for other vintage titles like HOUSE OF WAX (300K) and CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON. It's not scrubbed clean of film grain and imperfections but the 3-D alignment is now flawless. It looks remarkably good and we feel that you'll be very pleased. Hopefully, this will open doors for the Archive to restore other Golden Age titles for their respective copyright holders at a very reasonable price.
For as "strange" as it is as a movie....i would most certainly enjoy a release of THE MAZE....is there any chance of this? Or are ownership and surviving prints a problem?
It's with Paramount and 35mm left/right elements survive.
We met with their Archive department last year. They are not planning anything with their 3-D holdings for now...
Too bad this isn't part of the package licenced to Warner.
Dragonfly Squadron is in the house! You are going to be hearing a lot about this release on HTF over the next few weeks A HTF 3D ADDICT review will appear mid-week Todd Erwin will also be doing a review soon afterwards We have a few copies of the 3D Blu-ray to give away via an upcoming contest -- so stay tuned!
Ron, it looks like you're the first one to get a copy of the disc!
I really appreciate your interest in our work and enthusiasm for Golden Age 3-D. Thank you very much.
Only 43 titles to go and Greg, Jack and I can retire!
I have no delusion that all 50 3D movies from the 50s will actually come out on 3D Blu Ray. That said, each one that does is a victory and a pleasure. Especially the rarer titles like Man in the Dark and now Dragonfly Squadron. For all your efforts, Bob, Greg, and Jack, I thank you. Especially since I am aware that it is your efforts in the past that have ultimately allowed me the pleasure of seeing 40 of the existing 43 Golden Age 3D movies on the big screen.
