World 3-D Film Expo II

There are no words to express how much I'd like to go to the World 3-D Film Expo II.

"No anaglyphic (red/blue) here. All golden age films will be run as they were intended to be seen: In 35mm double interlock, Polaroid system, on the huge screen at the world famous Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood!"

If you've never seen a 3-D movie in the theater with polaroid glasses instead of those crappy red and blue anaglyph glasses then you have no idea what an amazing joy you're missing.

Taza, Son of Cochise, a 3-D Western by Douglas Sirk and starring Rock Hudson. By the way, I've actually seen Gun Fury by Raoul Walsh, also starring Rock Hudson, in the theater, in 3-D, at the Ballard Bay.

Those Redheads From Seattle with Popeye, the Ace of Space in which "Popeye is abducted by Martians who conduct a series of hideous experiments on him, but thanks to his copious spinach supply, all the experiments fail."

The original I, The Jury, The Stranger Wore a Gun, as well as The Stewardesses.

French Line. As the poster notes, Jane Russell in 3-D, "need we say more?"

Thrillers like Glass Web, Inferno and the quite interesting looking Diamond Web. The classic House of Wax and Stranger Wore a Gun, both by Andre DeToth.

Creature From The Black Lagoon and Revenge Of The Creature both... and both in 3-D, along with the Three Stooges in Spooks. Three Stooges in three dimensions, the mind boggles.

Kiss Me Kate, Hitchcock's classic Dial M For Murder and Flesh For Frankenstein, not to mention Gog, Gorilla At Large (which I saw long ago on one of those 3-D on TV experiments), It Came From Outer Space, Robot Monster and Casper the Friendly Ghost in Boo Moon.

And that's not even all of the movies booked that I'd love to see.

I could die happily at this festival. Why, oh, why do I even need to know it exists?
