It is one of the most highly-requested Golden Age 3-D titles. You will be amazed with our next 3-D restoration.

I hope this gets some theatrical attention as well, for those of us who can't do 3D at home!

Amazing stuff, Bob.

Yes, indeed. Kino's theatrical division will have a 3-D DCP available for booking!

Robert, do you know how they did stereo sound with this film (and the others like HOUSE OF WAX and IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE)? Was it using "Fox Sprockets" and mag tracks on the prints themselves or was sound on a separate 35mm reel locked in sync? Strange how all these stereo soundtracks wound up "lost." Could so many studios have really been that sloppy regarding storage and protection of their valuable film elements?

GREAT picture of 42nd street, btw. Most people elsewhere in the country can't image a street like this, LINED on both sides with movie theatre after movie theatre, all playing day-and-date with the theatres on Broadway and for pennies on the dollar. PLUS unlike the much more expensive Broadway theatres playing the SAME features, the Brandt theatres on 42nd added a second feature, sometimes a "short subject!" Many times I would sneak out of last period at school and take the subway there. For a kid who loved movies, this was movie theatre heaven -- I was like a kid in a candy store.

Frank, they were all full-coat 35mm magnetic interlock. That's 3 reels (left/right/mag) in-sync - we hope - per reel!
