REDHEADS is gonna be GREAT! That 50's color will really pop in 3D...

Mr. Kintz was faced with elements that had some pretty severe - and variable - color fade.
His results, as you will see, are outstanding.
That shot from the TV set looks like glorious Technicolor. I can hardly wait. Not to mention the work on the stereophonic soundtrack. Oh but I just did. Grin.
Bob, just watched GOG and was it flat as hell in 3D. Watched 8 3Ders before and after and they all looked great. Was there a problem with bringing this to 3D BD?
My new PJ was telling me that it was 3D, but it didn't look it.
HAD to be some problem with your disc or equipment as I assure you GOG is anything but "flat as hell"...

Something went wrong in your setup, John. GOG is loaded with depth and a bit of pop-out.
Try playing it from the first chapter stop and not by pressing "play." I had 3D problems with both GOG and THE MASK, but they went away when I did that.
Well, I just played it on my den TV with Passive glasses and it really looks great. It just doesn't look good with Active glasses in the HT...bummer.
I'll give that a try Bob.
(I also have active glasses, playing a Samsung through my Epson 5030 projector.)
Bob...it worked! Thanks so much for the suggestion. A post-it goes in the case with how to begin the movie.
John, sorry to hear that you had trouble watching GOG in 3-D. That's the first I've heard of anyone having an issue with this title.
As you can see, the Natural Vision stereo photography is outstanding.
Bob, what elements were used for the 3.0 stereo sound?
Various mono optical stems.
A very productive week here at the Archive.
Dr. Jan-Christopher Horak - Director of the UCLA Film and Television Archive - has written about the recent GOG screening in Berlin: https://www.cinema.ucla.edu/…/a…/2017/03/17/berlinale-part-2; we received a phone call from the legendary star of a Golden Age 3-D film that we are preparing to restore; we found one side of a previously lost 3-D short from 1953 and Kino has released the 3-D Blu-ray cover art for THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE!
I'm sure that all who frequent this forum are as thrilled as I am to know there is a lot of activity going on.
Keep um coming guys.
Now let's get 3D displays back in production!
It's in my list to buy at Amazon. Just bought Avatar, so this'll have to wait.
Love to see the original poster art being used for 3D releases on Blu ray - or for any film if it comes to that. Kino seem to be doing that regularly - The Vikings, Gog etc. I wish more companies did that - Twilight Time in particular - some of that fifties and sixties poster art was terrific.
I have no reason as to why any company would not use THE POSTER of the movie for the front of the BD case. Wasn't that Roger Corman's thinking, a poster before the picture?
Great news on forthcoming 3-D!
Anyone want to guess what the 1953 3-D short is? The following are from 3D Film Archive list of shorts that are lost.
