at amazon: http://www.amazon.co...l_mb_hu_m_16_dp for June 5 release. No details yet, and no mention of a 3-D option. C.C.C.A. instead of poster art. http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/

That last item is a die cut card used on top of the View Master display cabinet. There were preview reels for 27 of the 3-D movies from 1953/54 and the display cards are even harder to find than the reels!

Those Hondo 3-D ViewMaster reels have been out-of-print for fifty years ... half a century. Wouldn't it be nice if a collector who has them transferred them side-by-side to DVD-R so that they could be viewed as stereo pairs with a Lorgnette viewer.

Actually, they haven't been printed since 1953! They were only made at the time of the films theatrical release. Bob

Okay, out-of-print for 60 years. I would reproduce the stereo pairs right here if I could get them.

I'm pretty sure if this were going to be a Blu-ray 3D release the retail price would be a lot higher than $24.99, because the general practice is that 3D releases are 2D compatible which is generally accomplished with separate discs in the package.

No 3D, no sale. But I'll be glad to give it a rental.

Aha! You have one of the two reels! I suspected as much. Can those frames be scanned individually?

There was only one reel made and yes, I have it. I'm saving the image scans for an upcoming project... Here's an ad for the cabinet showing the HONDO display card. The reference to 3 reels is mis-leading. There were 3 viewers in each cabinet and when a theater ordered the promotional packet, he got 3 copies of the same reel for each film. http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/

Thanks Richard, I've had the full set of View Master preview reels since the mid-1980's. Even then, the prices were getting out of hand!

So, what is this project, and how long must I wait to see the stereo pairs? Of course, the real Apache scouts didn't look much like John Wayne in these 1870s stereocards: http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/ http://static.hometh...um.com/imgrepo/
