It probably played a week in an LA theater near the end of 1950 to qualify for the Oscars hoping Oscar nominations would increase box-office for a national release in 1951.Born Yesterday (TT BD) 1950. Interesting that the copyright is for the year 1951 and that the film was released in February 1951. Why did it qualify for the AA in 1950? Water under the bridge. Holliday is superb recreating her Broadway success. I first saw this film in the mid-'60s (TV) and fell in love with it. The transfer used by TT is a beauty.

Well Treasure of the Four Crowns didn't disappoint last night. It was like I remembered. Over the top 3D tricks. The plot was not unbelievable and not too silly like some of the 80's movies. I think I'll keep this one in my collection.Memorial Day evening I've decided to drag out an old 1983 3D classic. TREASURE OF THE FOUR CROWNS, 35mm, Dolby A stereo, Fuji color. I haven't watched it in a long time but I remember it has some crazy 3D effects from start to finish.

I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the general consensus, but there were two things that stuck with me:In fact, there was hardly anything redeeming about the film outside of Kaitlyn Dever. A real waste of time for us.
