For the first time in sixty years, THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE will be shown in 3-D and widescreen!

 

This special screening will take place on Sunday, September 15 at the 3-D Expo in Hollywood.

 

REDHEADS was the first non-anamorphic widescreen film to begin production in Hollywood during the breakthrough year of 1953. Composed for 1.66:1, filming began on March 16, 1953, only twenty days after THE ROBE went before the cameras at Fox.

Released on September 23, 1953, it has not been seen anywhere in widescreen since the original theatrical release.

 

For more information: http://3-dfilmexpo.c...ds-from-seattle

 

Here's the original widescreen trailer:

Let's identify the HTF members who are attending the 3D Expo.

My wife and I (bujaki) will be there for the duration. Maybe there's a chance we might meet?

So, the Egyptian will project The French Line, Inferno, Second Chance and Money From Home in original 3-strip Technicolor / dye-transfer prints. Three strips of film going through each projector. You don't see that everyday.

3-strip technicolor prints do not consist of multiple strips of film. The prints are single strips just like any other print. Or did I miss some very subtle joking on your part ?

Only two 3-D features were photographed with the Dynoptic Technicolor 3-D rig (YCM left/right) using six rolls of film per take:

 

MONEY FROM HOME

FLIGHT TO TANGIER

 

All the others that were printed in Technicolor (French Line, Inferno, Second Chance, Fort Ti, WIngs of the Hawk, The Stranger Wore a Gun, Devil's Canyon, Phantom of the Rue Morgue, etc) were photographed on standard Eastman color negative.

No, just a badly worded post. Looking it over now confuses even me.

 

I'll be at every screening. 

 

I wonder if Real D will be handing out active glasses during the first weekend.

Hi Bob,

 

When you said "Six rolls of film scanned at 4K and then restored/aligned for flawless 3-D and people still find something to complain about!" in a earlier post for House of Wax, I thought you were talking about Technicolor.

No, YCM separation masters made from the Warnercolor (Eastman) negatives.

The Real-D showings will be circular polarized.  The previous Hondo showing at the Academy was an active shutterglass system and not Real-D.

It may be the only title at the Expo not shown in the correct AR. Gretchen Wayne's 3-D master is 1.37.

 

All the 35mm prints will be correct however.

Hondo @ 1.37 is a disappointment. I was looking forward to the total experience of 3D and OAR.

Not all of those are DCP.

 

 

Obviously you guys are getting information I'm not privy to. I was told by personnel at the Egyptian that the entire first weekend would consist of DCP screenings.

 

So this IS Gretchen Wayne's DCP? The same one we've seen before? She had too many competitors over the Hondo conversion giving her bad and conflicting advice. I anticipate it will look better projected for passive glasses.

Of course the intended OAR is preferred, but if you haven't seen HONDO projected in 3-D before you'll still enjoy it regardless of the aspect ratio. I guarantee you'll enjoy it.

I'm not closely involved with this event but I know that HOUSE OF WAX, BWANA DEVIL and THE MAZE are all 35mm.

 

They're going to see if her DCP can be shown widescreen so don't rule that out.

I was told HOUSE OF WAX will be the new DCP Warner Brothers struck for the forthcoming blu-ray, and the same DCP that will be screened at the blu-ray party at the Aero September 29.

No, it's a 1980's vintage left/right print.

I'm glad to hear that.

 

Wasn't the 2003 screening a 1980's vintage left/right print?

Is it the same print we're seeing this year?

 

Wasn't the 2006 screening a newly struck print from Warner Brothers?

 

It's hard to keep track.

 

If you know, you might want to identify for us which titles are the DCPs during the first weekend.

I have not checked them all, but the Expo III website should properly list each title's projection format. http://3-dfilmexpo.com/filmguide/films

 

For example: http://3-dfilmexpo.c...lms/bwana-devil   lists as dual 35mm

Only 7 days to go.

 

What's playing at the Cinerama Dome the week of the festival, if anything, I wonder.
