Four titles listed in about 4 posts that I want and all lead to Warner Bros:Around the World in 80 Days
Perhaps I should have qualified "big movie" as a film that hasn't come out on VHS, DVD, Laser, Blue Ray or 4K? Or one that has been rarely seen?I've neither seen it either. Hope the soundtrack gets rereleased.
What would be the next big movie restoration to come out on DVD, Blue Ray, or 4K?
Cropping needed to correct barrel warping, Cinerama horizon sag, splices at top and bottom, and flashing of a white splice line at every cut. This is normally done by aperture plates when shown in a Cinerama theatre.
I, too, own that CD and it's absolutely wonderful and sounds like it was recorded "yesterday." Cinerama sound was far ahead of it's time and it really shows in this recording!!!How very informative, Mr. Strohmaier! I look forward to seeing the finished product. I will ask what may be a bit of a silly question. The extensive FSM CD of Leigh Harline’s score contains an “Act I Epilogue” not heard in the print that has been airing on TCM (I have included the link to a YouTube video below with the music in question so you’ll know what I’m talking about). Will this music be on the restored print along with the overture, entr’acte, and exit music, if it was ever part of the initial roadshow engagements, of course?
.. That would be the ultimate experience for this Cinerama fan, since I worked at the Uptown Cinerama theatre in Wichita, Kansas in 1962-63 when I was in high school and was there for the premiere of WWOTBG! Many fond memories which I still enjoy to this day! CINERAMA RULES!!!!
As noted elsewhere, this will be a Warner Archive release.This is truly a dream come true for the ages and I absolutely can't wait. Thank you David and your team. You have transformed hope into glorious reality and there are legions of grateful fans who will be placing their orders @ Flicker Alley on day one! You have worked a MAJOR MIRACLE!
