I also remember the publisher writing article after article about his car stereo system.

 

 

My lord! I thought I was the only one who was bothered by that. I actually wrote them a couple of complain-y letters about it.

I got so tired of his bragging I wrote and asked him if it was true he would be getting an IMAX screen and sound system in his car. He actually responded and thought I was serious. !!!

An IMAX screen would've actually given him a semi-legitimate excuse to put that crap in the magazine- at least it would have something to do with watching movies.

Then Films in Review was supposed to publish the ToddAO article but they folded just before as well. Jinx?

 

Marty Hart has some interestesting info on Todd-AO on his web site widescreenmuseum . American Optical was in Southbridge, MA - where I was born. My father worked there also.

Thanks Roland. I am a regular visitor to the site as well as In 70mm. Both are highly recommended.
