I understand there were quite a few Hollywood classics that were produced in 3D in 1952 - 1953 and then died in 1954 when wide screen CinemaScope took over. Not just B movies in black and white, but technicolor, for example Kiss Me Kate. Most theaters would only be able to show the 3D in anal-glyph, but there were a couple of rare theaters in major cities, like New York, where they could afford the two projector - polarized glasses - type of 3D. THIS kind of film I would like to see restored on Real-D 3D Blu-ray and would be thrilled to view it for the first time in its original 3D production and buy a copy for my just-started 3D collection.

None of the "Golden Age" 3-D films of the 50s were exhibited in anaglyph in their initial runs. Theaters either ran them in dual-35mm polarized 3-D or else simply ran them "flat" (2-D).

It's also a myth that only theaters in large cities showed these titles in 3-D. Even modest theaters had two projectors in their booth, so the only extra costs were for the silver screen and polarizing filters. There were plenty of 3-D titles exhibited in small towns. Interestingly, dual-35mm projection did require every show to feature an intermission since both projectors were utilized and the maximum reel size could only hold about an hours worth of footage.

Later inferior anaglyph transfers for television broadcasts are part of what gave 3-D such a bad reputation.

Thanks for the corrections. "Initial-runs" is likely the key-word here.

I remember personally, only seeing "Creature from the Black Lagoon" as part of a double feature and I was very young. Was that shown in small towns with analglyph glasses?

I personally feel that many people will be waiting to see the "Golden Age" films as they were originally intended in 3D.

It was re-released theatrically (along with It Came From Outer Space) in anaglyph back in the 70s (I think). I've seen both titles in dual-35mm, but I have friends who saw the analglyph runs and tell me they were well-done. There were also anaglyph VHS versions of these two titles which look terrible.

If there one was thing I liked about the (admittedly mostly bad) Last Airbender movie, it was the 3D. I felt a lot more comfortable withi it than I thought I would, especially one that was done later in the production. I hope it's poor box office performance and reviews doesnt keep a 3D release away, because I'd definitely buy one!

Good call on Harry Potter and Superman Returns, Propellarhead. When thinking about 3D releases, I alwasy forget those had parts in 3D!

I don't suspect we will see such titles for Blu-Ray 3D in a very long time. Reason none of those titles exist in 3D. Quality conversions take six months to a year to complete and cost over $110,000 per minute. Most movies make up for these costs with theatrical 3D premiums. However the Blu-Ray 3D market is much too small for this alone to make up conversion costs. I think it will be years before we see any titles converted to 3D just for Blu-Ray.

Titanic is the title on the list you will see the soonest in Spring 2012. Though the movie will be re-released in 3D theatrically first before any Blu-Ray 3D comes out.

For me personally, I only want 3-D movies that were made in 3-D. The conversion movies do not look as good.

Conversions can be awful when rushed and/or cheaply done

However when done right some conversions can look almost as good as native 3D material. Alice and Wonderland and The Nightmare Before Christmas looked pretty damn good in 3D. I say that when its possible to shoot in 3D thats the best option but I love that there is a realistic chance of seeing old movies like Star Wars and Lord of the Rings in 3D.

Some old movies were not shot in 3D, then it needs some conversion to 3D. It's quite expensive that making 1 minute 3D conversion costs $110,000? WOW! So one two-hour movie would cost $13,200,000 in 3D conversion. Is there any company who can provide cheaper 3D conversion?

Yes but there are dangers in doing it cheap. Go watch Clash of the Titans or The Last Airbender in 3D to see what I mean (or better yet don't). If you want converted content that can look anywhere near native 3D you need lots of time and money.

I suspect things will change over time. As the home 3D market grows and new digital technlogy makes conversion costs better and cheaper I suspect we will see more and more old movies in 3D. However similar to colorizing Black and White movies some will view this as perverting old movies and adding something to a movie that was never meant to be there. Personally i don't have a problem with colorization as long as the original black and white version is preserved and the same for 3D converted movies since all 3D discs have a 2D option. For the next few years I suspect the Blu-Ray 3D format will be limited to native 3D content (that includes all computer animated movies) and movies converted for the theatres. Since the studios already invested in making them 3D for the theatre it only makes sense to try to continue to profit from the 3D after the movie has left theatres.

"I'll take anything at this point." He, heeee. You speak for many a 3D fan sir. I also want Coraling very much. Saw it in a 4K theater and haven't been the same.
