I just received my copy of DRAGONFLY SQUADRON from Best Buy online yesterday and I concur with all of the very positive reviews about the Olive Film release of a film released in 3-D for the first time in almost sixty years. DRAGONFLY SQUADRON was photographed in 3-D but because the format was considered dead when it was time to release the film, Allied Artist (Monogram Pictures) chose to release the film only in 2-D to theatres. After all these years 3-D Archive headed by Technical Director, Greg Kintz and Film Tech member, Robert Furmanek executed a remarkable chore of almost perfectly restoring 35mm film elements that were in pretty bad condition into a film that now perfectly retains the 3-D imagery that was created in 1953.

DRAGONFLY DRAGON was a very low budget film and the movie is considered a B film but it is still entertaining. The cast includes John Hodiak, Barbara Britton, Bruce Benett, Fess Parker and Chuck Conners. The story is set at a US Air Force base in South Korea before and during the start of the Korean Conflict and is about a AF Major and his assignment to train South Korean fighter pilots.

After watching the movie last night,I was very happy Robert Furmanek and Greg Kintz and now are fully committed to release more more movies in 3-D from the Golden Age of the fifties. I am already looking forward to THE BUBBLE next month and a collection of rare 3-D shorts next year on Blu Ray

Thank you for the fantastic presentation I enjoyed in 3-D of DRAGONFLY DRAGON, Robert.

Yes Marcel, my 3D tv is a active set requiring the use of active glasses but my choice when watching 3D at a theatre, I prefer the passive RealD system and do not care too much for Dolby 3D.

I have had no problem with ghosting with even a 3D blu ray of DIAL M FOR MURDER that many complained about the cross talk. I have other discs that others have reported having problems with ghosting but they all play fine with my player and my 3D set.

I also have had no problem with the size of people or objects when watching 3D movies in a theatre or at home. I heard of people reporting this problem before but my brain seem to process stereoscopic imaging just fine ever since I was introduced to 3D in the early fifties.
