Bob, what are you trying to illustrate with that gif from HOW?

Nothing.

 

It's an animated GIF of a rare left/right 3-D image from the promotional View-Master preview reel.

While doing research for our HOUSE OF WAX article - http://www.3dfilmarc...om/House-of-Wax - I came across this lost June 1953 quote from Alfred Hitchcock on 3-D and widescreen.

 

DIAL M was in pre-production at the time.

Excellent.  The more people talk and write about all of this, the better for all of it and all of us.

Any historical/buildup review of this one?  Not one of the more familiar to casual fans, except for its little-known status as one of the first major-studio 3D entries of the 50's.  (Bwana Devil just sorta came out of nowhere.)

Which explains why TT might've started with that one "to begin with", out of all of Colubia's sampling.

 

From the description, sounds like noir with surreal dream-sequences to sell the 3D, but that's all I know.  Any clips/trailers to sweeten the pot?

It's a decent enough movie for something supposedly rushed through production. A decent number of gimmick shots, some of which are better than others. And some of the dialogue is pretty good, too. It's a remake of The Man Who Lived Twice. O'Brien is a gangster who has an operation to remove his criminal tendencies from his brain. Problem is, he's the only one who knows where he hid the loot from a heist. His old gang kidnaps him and tries to force him to remember. Like I said, a decent enough movie. Not the best but not really as bad as you may have heard.

 

An interesting choice, btw. I'm wondering if TT is planning to do The Mad Magician or Miss Sadie Thompson at a later date? Would be awesome if they did.

Lets hope Twilight Time can work with Bob and Greg to make sure the 3-D is perfect on the Blu-ray. I know that TT just uses what the studio sends them but maybe is this case they can get some help with it?

I think I read it was done in 11 days?

Sounds like this was more of a B-movie than an A-movie.

 

I'll buy it, even though I've never seen it before. Hopefully the 3D is handled correctly.

I've never seen it either, but from that era of 3D, I'm willing to buy almost anything.

Oh, it's completely a B-Movie. And 11 days sounds about what I heard, too. But I enjoyed it massively when I saw it at the Film Forum in 2004. I sincerely hope it's the start of multiple Classic 3D Blu Rays from Twilight Time.

 

Matt, you seem to enjoy pop-outs and this one has quite a number. I think you'll have a grand time with it.

As I've been saying, every release of vintage 3-D will have my full support. Looking forward to it!

We have a wealth of material on this film.
