It is one of the most highly-requested Golden Age 3-D titles. You will be amazed with our next 3-D restoration.

Awesome News! I see you are going to give the release a restored 3 channel stereo track (which was also a great treat on "Those Redheads from Seattle"). Thanks Bob and Crew for all the great work you are doing in restoring these classic films!

Thank you very much, Realist.

Whenever possible, we will restore the lost three-channel stereophonic tracks. Most of the 3-D titles do not survive.

It looks fun! If they roadshow it the way they did the 3D Rarities films, I'll check it out. Unfortunately, I don't have a home 3D set up.

A film I first heard about many years ago but have never seen. I'm looking forward to the 3D blu-ray. The 3D archives' previous restorations have been stunning.

Bob, take my money please! Let's hope Kino stays on board till the end. I've heard you say that in some of your past projects, the studio/publisher pulled the plug on you at the 11th hour for whatever reasons, even after they had greenlit your disc.

That tragic situation was with Olive Films and a 3-D Blu-ray of MONEY FROM HOME. After I was given the go ahead by the owner and got my restoration team together (Jerry Lewis, UCLA Film Archive, Packard Humanities Institute and Fotokem) Olive pulled the plug at the 11th hour and didn't want to spend $7K in order to create a 3-D master.

Panamint did the same with a 3-D Blu-ray of THE GLASS WEB. Again, we had all the ducks in a row at NBCUniversal and were ready to make it happen.

You don't have to worry about Richard Lorber and his superb staff at Kino Lorber Studio Classics. Frank Tarzi, Bret Wood and everyone with that outstanding company have respect for the filmmakers intent and release films as they were intended to be seen.

You won't be getting any 3-D titles released flat by Kino!

Any chance David Packard at The Stanford or the folks at The Rafael Theater in San Rafael might be screening any of these?
Thanks,
Randy
PS,
Or maybe even the Castro or the PFA in Berkeley?

I just remembered that the Stanford only screens film. If these recent restorations are digital the theater can't show them.

Restoration work is going very well on THE MAZE; scanned in 4K from the original 35mm left/right camera negatives. Our first collaboration with Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation and the Paramount Archive will present the Shocking Chills in 3-D and stereophonic sound for the first time anywhere since 1953!

For technical reasons which are explained at the bottom of this page on our website - http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/home/top-10-3-d-myths" - all 3-D features of the 1950's required an Intermission break. Usually, the card would be silent but two studios actually had music written to accompany them: Warner Bros. and Allied Artists.

The Intermission card for THE MAZE, with Marlin Skiles music cue, has not been part of the film since the original 3-D theatrical release in 1953. We are proud to announce that it has been restored for the upcoming 3-D Blu-ray release from Kino Lorber!

The film was rushed through post-production and editor John Fuller mistakenly flipped the left/right images for the Intermission on the camera negative. Audiences in 1953 saw the title in reverse 3-D but restoration expert Greg Kintz has now corrected that error and for the first time, you will see it properly on the 3-D Blu-ray.

THE MAZE is our inaugural collaboration with Martin Scorsese's Film Foundation and the Paramount Archive. This outstanding 3-D restoration would not have been possible without the vision and support of Richard Lorber and his excellent staff at Kino Lorber Studio Classics.

Up next on the 3-D Film Archive/Kino Lorber 3-D restoration slate is SANGAREE. http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/sangaree"

Hi Bob :

Hillary's article on Sangaree on the 3D Archive website says Sangaree was composed for 1:33 but released and projected in 1:66. Which aspect ratio will you be using for the blu-ray ?

We always honor the AR that a film was composed for by the creative team during principal photography.

For SANGAREE, that's 1.37:1.
