Happy 2014 from Julie Adams and the 3-D Film Archive.

 

Watch for DRAGONFLY SQUADRON, THE BUBBLE* and 3-D RARITIES fully restored from master 35mm elements on 3-D Blu-ray in 2014!

That's great news! Will The Bubble be 112 or 94 minutes?

It's the short version. The preview version no longer survives, the camera negative was cut.

 

We have the final shooting script which I hope to include as an extra.

I hope all your releases do Supercalifragilisticexpealidocously well, Bob, and that someday we may see El Corazon Y La Espada as well.


Viewing a 3D movie in 2D is kinda like viewing a Scope movie in Pan and Scan.

Thanks, Todd.

 

Unfortunately, nobody will touch EL CORAZON Y LA ESPADA. We may eventually try a Kickstarter campaign for that one.

Oh, don't worry, I'm of that generation who saw Star Wars in a theater, and knows The Fantastic Invasion of Planet Earth when he sees it...   :blink: 

 

But nice to see these titles finally going commercial--Between this and TT jumping into the early Columbias, we'll finally have a few more Golden Ages for the collectors...Will it be available through Amazon?

We remember Russell Johnson, 1924 - 2014. He appeared in the 3-D classic IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE and also did voice-over work in Douglas Sirk's TAZA, SON OF COCHISE. May he rest in peace.

Bob, is THE MASK still a blu-ray possibility?

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!

the most important question I will ask all day, who is going to be distributing this on disc, and when is the pre-order going to be available :D

Thanks Dana, the "official" announcement for THE BUBBLE* will be made very soon!

 

We won't be writing an article/review on MAN IN THE DARK. Here is an interview by the DVD Savant with 3-D Film Archive Technical Director, Greg Kintz.

In anticipation of "Dragonfly Squadron" being region "A" locked, I just purchased a new Sony Region "A" 3D Blu-ray player from B&H.

 

Now that's what you call 3D dedication. :wub:

Came across this in the Feb 1953 edition of Picturegoer magazine. 

Here's some interesting Film plus a Cast announcement that changed somewhat and some advice that probably rang true.

So, Ten Commandments and The Robe were originally going to be excuses for making big-studio 3D, but everyone rushed to the "new miracle" of more immersive and colorful bigger-screen format because too many small-town audiences were whining about having to wear glasses?

 

...Good thing nothing like that happens today.   :rolleyes:

Hi Bob,

Just wanted to say I finally got a copy of Dial M for Murder in 3D. The first thing that really grabbed me is the incredible spatial depth! It looked exactly like the kind of 3D image we got from a View Master as kids. Modern 3D films look absolutely anemic by comparison. The main titles popped out right into the middle of my living room! I can't wait to get House of Wax next.

I agree Mark, you'll be VERY pleased with HOUSE OF WAX and THE BUBBLE too.

 

People were raving about how great the depth was on a newer title. I rarely buy something sight unseen but happened to come across the title in Best Buy and made the purchase. When I watched it, I had to take off my glasses several times to see if there was even a double-image. The 3-D was terribly minimized throughout the entire film.

 

You certainly don't have those issues with Golden Age titles.

Can you name the film. ?
