Thanks for more great posters and invaluable information about these (mostly) forgotten films.

Paramount also owns THE MAZE, which was originally released by Allied Artists. The other Allied Artists 3-D feature from the Golden Age was DRAGONFLY SQUADRON, released flat only in 1954. We own the rights and have the left/right elements. http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ Bob Furmanek Vice President 3-D Film Preservation Fund http://www.3dfilmpf.org/

As there has been some colorful debate about the meaning of "Director-approved" transfers and how it relates to how widespread 1.66 was in the UK, I will make the following point. The dominant aspect ratio at British Studios between 1955-1970 WAS 1.75. This is based on research going through trade listings of hundreds of British films, as well as studio archives and other primary sources. 1.85 was the second most listed aspect ratio, with 1.65/1.66 a distant third.

You're welcome, Chas! Here's a bit of 3-D trivia for you: MONEY FROM HOME and FLIGHT TO TANGIER were the only two features shot with Technicolor's 3-D camera system. This massive camera rig had six rolls of stock going through it for each take: yellow, cyan, magenta Left and YCM Right. Jerry Lewis said the heat was so intense on the set, they could only film for very short takes. If you look carefully, you'll see shots where Dean's hair is wet. Here's a shot in front of the camera blimp: http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/

Thanks for showing us this photo. I wish Dean wasn't standing in front of the lenses so that I could see them. I gather the surrounding box is for the blimp and for six magazines. MONEY FROM HOME has been released flat on DVD. A seriously good character-driven drama / comedy, but when projected in stereo, it's a very different movie. It was the surprise hit of the 2006 Expo. The audience loved it, and then it traveled to other 3-D festivals. The image resolution is staggering. There is a lot to be said for those old, cumbersome photochemical and mechanical processes when they produce a quality so far in advance of what's being shot today. There is simply no comparison. MONEY FROM HOME is one of the stereoscopic films I would most like to see on Blu-ray. A Blu-ray might give TV viewers an idea of how stunning 6-strip dye-transfer Technicolor 3-D can look. Bob, so far as I know your restoration of DRAGONFLY SQUADRON hasn't been shown to the public, has it? What it's like? How is it?

Here's a rare promo film shot on the set of MONEY FROM HOME. The Technicolor 3-D camera is hard to miss!

That's a great vintage promo, Bob! I had never seen that before.
