HARMONY LANE 3-D World Premiere!

Unread post by Bob Furmanek » Mon Oct 17, 2016 2:34 pm

In August 2014, we found this lost 3-D short buried deep in the vaults of the British Film Institute.

Directed by Lewis Gilbert (as Byron Gill) and photographed by A.E. Jeakins in March 1953, it sat on the shelf until the end of 1954 when it was finally released flat.

This delightful 27 minute short is like spending a night at the Palladium with several variety acts. They include dancing by the Jack Billings Trio; a song by the Beverley Sisters; "Swan Lake" by Svetlana Beriosova and David Paltenghi of the Sadler's Wells Ballet; precision dancing by The Television Toppers and a comedy routine with Dora Bryan and Max Bygraves. The orchestra was directed by future Hammer Studios composer, Philip Martell.

Art direction was by future Oscar and Emmy nominee Michael Stringer and the excellent stereo cinematography was the work of Brian Smith. In 1951, Smith had directed the first British 3-D short in Technicolor, DISTANT THAMES/ROYAL RIVER which was a tremendous success at the Festival of Britain and the Edinburgh Film Festival.

We are thrilled that after 63 years, HARMONY LANE will finally be seen in 3-D! The world premiere is October 27 at the Cambridge Film Festival and it will make its 3-D Blu-ray debut with our restoration of SEPTEMBER STORM in the very near future. http://www.cambridgefilmfestival.org.uk ... ny-lane-3d" target="_blank
