There's newly-found information in this article on Harold Lloyd's early interest in 3-D cinematography: http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/sangaree

That was post-1947 with the introduction of the Stereo Realist camera.

A box set of Harold Lloyd features etc had a disc with his 3-D photographs. I think this was the US set. The UK set did not have the disc but rather a Lloyd feature not on the US set, Welcome Danger.

You can buy his 3D photos in a book supplied with 3D glasses: https://www.amazon.com/3-D-Hollywood-Su ... 0671769480

There's also a book devoted solely to the nudes.

I've often wondered if the availability and popularity of the Realist and Kodak 3D still cameras for home use helped technicians working in Hollywood prepare for their work on 3D features in the early 50s. In the 90s, I did quite a bit of 3D still photography and it was helpful to understand what kind of lighting and compositions worked well (and no so well) for good 3D effects.

Several of the 50s era films I've seen in 3D seem to be more planned for the format - many of the current batch of 3D movies from the past decade seem to be framed and thought out for 2D with the 3D an afterthought.

Any idea how many of the people that worked on the 3D classics of the 50s experimented with Realist and Kodak 3D still cameras before they started work on a 3D feature?
