Yes, there is a connection between 3-D, Jerry Lewis and Star Trek!

I'm pleased to announce that we have just recorded our first feature commentary track. I had the great pleasure of joining Hillary Hess and Jack Theakston to discuss all aspects of THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE.

Throughout the 90 minutes, we cover the films production and limited 3-D release; the recently solved mystery of the origin of the Paravision camera and the technical challenges of filming in dual-35mm 3-D; the pioneering use of widescreen framing and the lost three-channel stereophonic sound; Lionel Lindon's outstanding and complex three-dimensional compositions; my decades long search for missing 3-D elements and so much more. In addition, Archive Technical Director Greg Kintz joins us for a ten-minute segment to describe the many challenges that he faced with bringing this stereoscopic gem back to life.

THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE are coming to 3-D Blu-ray from Kino Lorber in May 2017. Don't miss "3-D's big musical gal-stacked frolic!" http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/those-redh ... om-seattle" target="_blank

Kudos to Ned Price, George Feltenstein and their team at Warner Bros. for restoring SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS. They've gone the extra mile to also include the non-anamorphic widescreen version in an upcoming Warner Archive Blu-ray release.

To quote film preservation master Robert Harris, this was "an expensive, and beautifully produced restoration."

We urge everyone to support this release (buy at least two copies) and perhaps we will see other costly restorations in the Warner Archive series? Their important MGM, RKO and Warner Bros. stereoscopic library holds twelve Golden Age features, two cartoons and three Pete Smith shorts.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to have those available on 3-D Blu-ray!

I have the original DVD double and already ordered the Blu Ray I have been waiting to happen. One more off the list.

Why are there occasional flat scenes in vintage 3-D movies and why does REVENGE OF THE CREATURE rank at the top of that list?

On October 14, 2014, we released our first 3-D title on Blu-ray: DRAGONFLY SQUADRON.

Over these past four years, we have established a winning formula for rescuing vintage 3-D films and have proudly restored fourteen vintage titles for Blu-ray release.

Working with microscopic budgets, we have brought these stereoscopic gems back to life and out of the vaults and into your homes. We truly care more about preservation than profit and you can not find a better team than Greg Kintz, Thad Komorowski, Jack Theakston and Eckhard Büttner. Thanks to our dedicated staff of restoration experts, the films truly look better today than when they were first shown in theaters.

Our current restoration project is the never released in 3-D headhunter jungle adventure JIVARO aka LOST TREASURE OF THE AMAZON starring Fernando Lamas and Rhonda Fleming with Brian Keith, Lon Chaney and Rita Moreno. Watch for it from Kino Lorber in early 2019.

Other 3-D Film Archive restorations coming soon include 3-D RARITIES II from Flicker Alley featuring the ultra-rare feature (not shown anywhere since 1954) EL CORAZON Y LA ESPADA starring Cesar Romero and Katy Jurado; a 3-D Nudie-Cuties double feature with Francis Ford Coppola's THE BELLBOY AND THE PLAYGIRLS plus the never-before-seen Natural Vision feature, ADAM AND 6 EVES. In addition, there are many more surprise features from 3-D's Golden Age including one title that was never released in third-dimension that will make its official debut on 3-D Blu-ray in 2019. Keep an eye on our website for news and updates: http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/home

I thank everyone for your interest and support. Rest assured; there is much more to come!
