I'll be introducing this film at the Museum of Modern Art on Friday, August 1 at 4:30. If you're at the show, please introduce yourself and say hello. I'd like to meet you.

 

I'll be bringing a sample of an original 1953 sepia-toned print!

Are they showing it via DCP or film?

It's the newly restored master via DCP.

 

As much as I'm a film purist, digital is better for the 35mm 3-D titles. There are no issues with alignment, framing, light balance, etc.

 

So long as the mastering is done properly (and this one is excellent) it's a flawless presentation.

This was sepia-toned when it was released? Why couldn't the elements given to TT by Sony replicate that? Warners can do it with OZ. I feel the same way about all the other films I have seen in sepia-toned prints that have been sadly released for home viewing only in B&W.

For some reason, Sony did not restore the sepia when they did their restoration.

 

The only other Golden Age 3-D title to have a sepia release was SPOOKS. Here's a frame from the left side of a 3-D pair:

I should mention that IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE and CAT WOMEN OF THE MOON were planned for a sepia release but they went out in black and white.

Thanks, Bob. I always feel it's a missed opportunity not to release the films to us the way they were originally presented. I do believe that our current TVs and projectors can handle sepia tones.

I agree 100% and certainly would have made that recommendation to Sony.

 

Hopefully, SPOOKS will be mastered in sepia when it appears on 3-D Blu-ray.
