    Wonderful! - I don't think we've ever had anything like this - in the north of England anyway. If we have, they've kept it a secret!

    It doesn't happen all that often in Southern England either. :) :3dglasses:

    The 3-D DCP version of MISS SADIE THOMPSON has been available from Sony for awhile now and was shown at the 3rd World 3-D Expo in 2013.


    It looks *stunning*.

    At the HTF meet a week ago, Nick Redman of Twilight Time told us they have the rights to release Miss Sadie Thompson in 3D but simply haven't slotted a time for its release yet. It IS coming at some point.

    That's great news! Earlier we had heard that people had inquired about it but Sony wasn't making it available for license, so this is a fantastic update!

    Out of curiosity, was The Mad Magician mentioned also?

    I don't remember if it was, but Gorilla at Large was mentioned. Twilight Time has that one, too.

    I wouldn't get too excited. Maybe I didn't hear it right, but I thought they said these 3D titles might be released in two to ten years from now. I could be wrong.

    SADIE is restored and a 3-D master is ready to go. All they have to do is author and replicate.


    GORILLA is not ready and Fox does not have a left/right master so no work has been done. In fact, they don't know what side they have mastered in HD. Nobody made note of it on the file...

    The Mad Magician would be my preferred title of the three, but I would buy the other two on release.

    That seems an odd way to drum up excitement about the release but rest assured, the steady flow of product on 3-D Blu-ray from the 3-D Film Archive next year (and beyond) will satisfy your Golden Age 3-D needs!

    That's great news!


    At the HTF meet in 2012, TT said they were going to release a 1950's 3D title and later we found out it was Man in the Dark. Since then, no 1950's 3D titles.


    I asked and I think it was Adam also asked TT at the HTF meet in 2015 about 3D titles. It put a smile of their faces and it didn't seem like they were very interested as they joked about it. Maybe I misunderstood their re-actions as implying it would be a long time before they release another 1950's 3D title. I hope I'm wrong.

    With SADIE ready to go, it's a very simple process to author and release on 3-D Blu-ray. Grover Crisp and his restoration team at Sony have done all the work.


    On GORILLA, we would need to identify the current transfer (hopefully it's the same side from start to finish), scan the opposing side from 35mm and then do shot-by-shot panel-matching and alignment in order to create a widescreen (1.66:1) 3-D master.


    I really don't see Twilight Time paying for this work so it's up to Fox to cover the costs. As they know, we can do the best job at the most reasonable price.

    They released Man in the Dark which although not a great film looks very good in 3-D. Presumably sales are slow. Sadie should be a different proposition because it is in colour and stars Rita Hayworth.

    While I enjoy MAN IN THE DARK, that would not have been my first choice for Blu-ray release from the Sony 3-D library.


    If I were calling the shots on the nine Golden Age Columbia 3-D titles and three shorts, here's the order I would go with:


    1. The Mad Magician

    2. Miss Sadie Thompson

    3. Gun Fury with Down the Hatch

    4. William Castle box - Fort Ti with Spooks, Drums of Tahiti, Jesse James vs. the Daltons

    5. Man in the Dark with Pardon My Backfire

    6. Western double-feature: The Stranger Wore a Gun and The Nebraskan
