NitrateVille Radio Episode 11: 3-D! With Bob Furmanek and Jack Theakston
Step right up for the greatest sensation in movie history...
3-D was a 1950s fad—but 3-D's history is longer and wider than you know. I talk with 3-D Film Archive's Bob Furmanek and Jack Theakston about the history of stereoscopic movies from the earliest days of movies to today, and about their efforts to preserve 3-D films—and put them out on blu-ray through labels like Kino Lorber, Flicker Alley and others. Their work will be highlighted in a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art starting September 1, to be followed by showings at the Alamo Drafthouse in Yonkers later in the month and, hopefully, around the country after that. (64:30)
Greg Kintz and Bob Furmanek of 3D Film Archive, Dave Kehr of MOMA, John McElwee of Greenbriar Picture Shows, and Jack Theakston of 3D Film Archive, at an earlier MOMA screening.
There's a full list of their releases at the 3-D Film Archive site, but here are some of the titles we talk about in the show:
3-D Rarities (Flicker Alley)
It Came From Outer Space (Universal)
Those Redheads From Seattle (Kino Lorber)
September Storm (Kino Lorber)
Here at NitrateVille, Chris Jacobs has reviewed several of these including It Came From Outer Space and Those Redheads From Seattle.

“I'm in favor of plagiarism. If we are to create a new Renaissance, the government should encourage plagiarism. When convinced that someone is a true plagiarist, we should immediately award them the Legion of Honor.” —Jean Renoir
I don't care about The Day the Clown Cried either.
Life's too short to sit on our rears watching other people's work.
