Oh yes, we're going to address THE MASK later this year once our first three releases (THE BUBBLE, DRAGONFLY SQUADRON and TREASURES FROM THE ARCHIVE) are finished and delivered.
One of the things that is most important in our work is to go directly to the source (industry trade journals and studio production files) to get the facts and clear up the myths. For instance, we've been trying for many years to eliminate the myth about anaglyph 3-D in the 1950's and have finally turned a corner in that regard. http://www.3dfilmarc...op-10-3-d-myths
I've noticed nearly every review of the new MAN IN THE DARK Blu-ray claims that it was filmed in eleven days. I don't know the source of that quote, but it's not true.
It took less than five minutes for me to check our files and determine that MITD went before the cameras on February 25, 1953 and wrapped on March 18. Not counting Sundays, my count shows nineteen days of filming. They spent six days alone working on location at the Ocean Park Pier in Santa Monica. http://thenativelato...an-park-pier-2/
Please feel free to link to this post if you find any other sites repeating the eleven day myth. Thank you!
