Twilight Time do an amazing job with their (expensive) releases of major and not so major films. Inferno was a little film released at the height of the 3D craze, All of the promotional material called out the stereophonic sound as strongly as the 3D - but sadly the blu ray has been released in mono. It is a pity as stereo sound make an incredibly stronger impact on any film. By contrast, Anastasia's release with magnificent 5.1 sound is incredible.

Hopefully the second tier companies (Olive, Kino Lorder etc) will source stereo as a necessary inclusion where originally available.

The transfer and the 3D impact are sensational. The film is of little but passing interest but it is the 3D that gives the release its value.

One of the best 3D releases (or most "important" as far as commercial success) has been Warner's Kiss Me Kate - M-G-M's luxe film that is a must with incredible stereo and picture.

Bob Furmanek can confirm that the stereo tracks have been lost for many of the early 3D titles. Several titles restored by the 3D Film Archive have had stereo tracks recreated by Eckhard Büttner.

Both of the 3D Blu-ray releases of INFERNO (Twilight Time and Panamint) are in mono. I believe Bob F from the 3D Film Archive has confirmed that the stereo tracks no longer exist.

As meticulous as Twilight Time has been about the sound properties of the titles they release (giving us glorious isolated scores on the vast majority of them), you'd have to know that if there had been stereo tracks at their disposal for Inferno, they certainly would have presented them on the disc.

If it used a separate interlocked reel like the Paramount and Columbia stereo mixes, kiss it goodbye.

I'd like to add to this that Twilight Time (Michael Matessino) will go the extra mile wherever possible and provide the isolated score in its original recording format (3-channel) as it is on their edition of "INFERNO". This was unheard of just a few years ago and the sound is superb.
