    SANGAREE in 3-D!

    Absolutely agree! The "Dollar Bills" had a knack for getting the most out of their resources, and the results offer a wide variety of entertainment, even within the same picture. Frugal? For sure, but wonderful showmen in the classic Hollywood vein.

    SANGAREE in 3-D!

    Yes, KMK does look wonderful. What interests me about SANGAREE is that while MGM was able to incorporate what was learned about 3-D production by the time of KMK, the Pine-Thomas and Paramount team was doing some incredible things right out of the box, creating a world of exteriors (real and...

    SANGAREE in 3-D!

    I'm glad you enjoy my take on the movie, Josh, and I appreciate everyone's feedback on the review. There is so much more to SANGAREE, but it seems when I'm watching how well the 3-D is done, I find myself noticing these other elements which serve both the depth and the story.

    SANGAREE in 3-D!

    Expanding a bit on my comment regarding the rear projection in SANGAREE. The process shots in "Dial M for Murder" or "Man in the Dark" provide compelling evidence that rear projection is not suitable for 3-D, but it is used to good effect here. Paramount was fortunate to have Farciot Edouart...

    SANGAREE in 3-D!

    My review: Recently, I had the good fortune to see a preview of the new SANGAREE 3-D blu-ray, and am delighted to report it is better than anticipated, both in content and in presentation, even though expectations were high due to the reputation of the 3-D Film Archive team. The film itself...

    SANGAREE in 3-D!

    Indeed he does! Fans of Fernando will not be disappointed; his shirtless scenes alone are worth the 3-D. And it's fun to read how 3-D enhances the..."charms"....of the female leads in their low-cut gowns.

    3D Meet Bob Furmanek: HTF Golden Age 3-D Consultant

    To build on what Pete wrote, I found "Those Redheads From Seattle" to be surprisingly masterful in its use of 3-D. It was a very clever touch to have Gene Barry's office feature a window with a curtain. We see the curtains drawn to his own view in 3-D, just as the audience would have...

    Those Redheads From Seattle: THE HTF 3D ADDICT REVIEW

    Back when TV shows were finished on film, I'd notice a change in picture quality and shout "optical coming up." The cut to a softer, grainier picture was the giveaway. It's the same with these 1950s movies shot on Eastman or other integral tripack color films. Ronald, I would wager that...

    Attention 3D Enthusiasts: Please help get MONEY FROM HOME on 3D Blu-ray from Olive Films

    Hello everyone! I've been lurking for a while around here, but felt motivated to make my first comment on this thread. The "Money From Home" footage shown at MoMA should be enough to convince anyone who saw it of the viability of Bob Furmanek's proposal. The 3-D Film Archive has consistently...
