We ran Stewardesses 3D midnite Sat. nite to a collegiate age audience. They loved it. It is campy enough and with legs, arms and other body parts protruding from the screen they hooted, whistled and yelled for more. Several on the way out asked when we were going to show it again and some asked if there is a harder core version available. The print was in good physical condition but about half was faded to pink. It has been unfortunately edited to a very R state (only breasts, butts and distant frontal views).

"The print was in good physical condition but about half was faded to pink. "

Which half?

As I remember, Stewardesses 3-D was heavy on reds and pink to begin with.

There was a porno film that we showed way back when in 3d 70mm
I can't remember the title but it was filmed
in "SUPER ULTRA PORNORAMMASCOPE 70MM"
We rented the theatre a pair of JJ's for it run
Does anyone remember the title?

Correct me if I am wrong but weren't there 70mm blowups struck of 'Panorama Blue'? I do know of 35mm scope prints.

Well, I know a poster for the Lollypop Girls in Hard Candy says its in "3-D Super 70mm Stereo."

Panorama Blue was shown in 70mm prints in San Francisco (St. Francis) and Hollywood (Paramount, now the El Capitan) back in the 70's.

This print of Stewardesses was a pieced together print made from some sections that were in good color and other parts were from prints that had faded to the pink that many older prints fade to.

I have a VHS tape of "The Stewardesses" that uses a field-sequential 3-D system with LCD shutter glasses. Quality is quite good. I tell people that after you've seen the "lamp" scene, you can then honestly say you've seen everything!

I love the lamp scene! It's probably the finest acting that appears anywhere in that film. She's the only actress who seemed to have any sort of "potential."

For a film with lots of bad acting, bad direction, and bad editing, Stewardesses is a lot of fun to watch, and I recommend it.

Jesse, is that the full uncut version? If so, where can I get a copy? I've got the glasses and interface. I haven't had a look at that film since the 70s, and I want to peg the scene where the manager in our theatre walked into deep-vision to give an announcement.

Ive got a 35mm scope trailer for Panorama Blue, its pretty hilarious as it uses the 2001 Space Odyssey theme music, and shows the rear screen projection of people on a roller coaster "gettin busy", heh. I also liked it because it advertised the fact it was a 70mm 4 track production.

I seem to remember that this film ran for something like 2 years at the Loop Theater in Chicago. Then they did a run of House Of Wax and then the theater was torn down. I watched H.O.W. form the balcony there and can remember some drunk coughing like hell down in front when the wax museum burnt down. The Loop was a really tiny place, a former newsreel theater right across from the State-Lake Theater.

The unedited version had according to one of the guys at the theatre at least one straight on close up crotch shot with legs sticking out over the audience and lots of other equally interesting scenes that were not present in this version. Another effect of 3D is it seems to cause some people to be nauseated, several left the auditorium to do so during the movie. And 2 puked in the seats.

The copy I have doesn't seem to be the "full" version that someone else saw, but still seems pretty daring for 1969. I'm not sure if it's still available, but the company that put it out can be found at www.3dmagic.com I haven't ordered anything from them in over 10 years because after I got my first laserdisc player I couldn't go back to tapes. I STILL think they should make new movies in 3-D, when done right it looks great. I don't know why it was used mostly on bad movies- I remember "Spacehunter" and "Return of the Jedi" came out around the same time and I saw "Spacehunter" first just because it was in 3-D!

PANORAMA BLUE was advertised as "filmed in 70mm Super Widecreen PanoramaScope and 4-track stereophonic sound". It was not 3-D. The 70mm print was conventional spherical 70mm with 6 channels of sound. It shipped on 3 30-minute (full to the edge) reels.

It opens with a small 1.37:1 image in black and white. As the segment ends the music rises as the screen opens to the full 70mm aspect ratio and changes to color. We're going on a Panorama Holiday!
