The 3-D Restoration of Those Redheads From Seattle was one of the best experiences I've ever had with a 3-D movie. The colors, the songs, and action, and the characters were fascinating, and seeing a wonderful film for the first time with like-minded friends makes the moment even more enjoyable.

 

Here's the latest on that restoration from Bob Furmanek, and 3-D Film Archive, LLC:

 


The above photo "is the original scan vs. the end result as delivered by 3-D Film Archive on THOSE REDHEADS FROM SEATTLE.

 

The 35mm negatives - and especially the many opti...cals (dupe negative) scattered throughout the film - are terribly faded. On top of extensive color correction and flicker reduction, factor in the meticulous shot-by-shot stereoscopic alignment/panel matching by Greg Kintz and frame-by-frame dirt/damage clean-up by Thad Komorowski and you would expect a restoration of this caliber to easily run six figures. In fact, if it went to a post facility like Photokem in LA or Cineric in NY, it could easily have run $200K, or more.

 


We brought the entire restoration in for $14K.

 

If we had tried to raise more than ten times what we ultimately spent in bringing this rare film back to life, it would have never been seen in 3-D again. There's simply not enough profit to be made with a 3-D Blu-ray release. But for three months, we worked around the clock to make this happen. Multiple favors were pulled and many sleepless nights went into finishing the master. We believe you will be quite pleased with our results.

 

REDHEADS was a big hit when it premiered at the TCM festival and you can own it on 3-D Blu-ray when it's released by Kino Lorber on May 23!"

Thanks to KTEP in El Paso, Texas, for this interview with Charlie Tabesh, Senior Vice President for Programming!
IMG_1762_zpsylceadpu.jpg
"The TCM cable channel has been a go to for classic movie lovers. While TCM allows movie lovers to enjoy the classics in the comfort of their own homes, TCM also recognizes the importance of the communal experience in watching a film with fellow film enthusiasts. It is for that reason that TCM hosts the TCM Classic Film Festival and remains one of the important film festivals for the classics. Charlie Tabish, TCM's Senior Vice President for Programming, discusses this years film festival that will run from April 6-9 in Hollywood."

Here 'tis the linkadinkadoo: http://ktep.org/post...film-festival-3

If you see Mr. Tabesh running around at the festival, make sure you tell him thank you for 8 fabulous years of cinematic festival fun!

What a Festival you all have planned for this year and all in just eleven months!  They seem to get better each year despite always losing so many classic people between them.  No wonder you couldn't wait until May. 

 

That guest lineup is amazing.  There are so many I'd love to meet starting with Ruta Lee whom I've loved since I was a kid-not that she'd want to hear that from somebody who's 71.   

 

I'd also like to know if Alex Trebek has any acting credits on film, either here or in Canada..  I mentioned on another thread that I've been watching his predecessor on Jeopardy, Art Fleming, starring on a 50's Western series and wonder if he has anything similar in his background we can look at..

 

It's good this is happening now.  We're all still mourning RO and this is a chance for those who can come to do it together while also celebrating him in the place where he put so much of himself making the Festival what it has become.  I'll be thinking of all of you while catching what will be on TCM for us back home to share.  Everybody have a great time and get there and back safely.

Some fine additions to the festival and some tough decisions to be made.

 

Panique is a superb film noir, with a great performance by Michel Simon and imaginative direction by Julien Duvivier. French anti-semitism, collaboration with the Nazis, and mob behavior form the subtext of this dark story.

 

Seeing Genevieve Bujold at the showing of King of Hearts is high on my list this year.

I agree, James. Judy Holliday wrested the archetype of the dumb blonde from several prominent actreses and turned it on its kister with "Born Yesterday," and the talent of William Holden was the gorgeous catalyst.

IMG_1734_zpsqsjutx8m.jpg

An article from Pictures magazine in 1946 or 1947 stated that author Betty McDonald's book, "The Egg and I" was "the country's biggest coast-to-coast laugh since Wrong Way Corrigan landed" on the shores of Ireland. Selling more than one million copies, the film starred Claudette Colbert and Fred MacMurray.

This year at the festival, Kate MacMurray will introduce the 1947 film.

IMG_1735_zpsj584fome.jpg

To publicize the film, professional huckster Jim Moran sat on an ostrich egg to hype the film. Read more about Moran's antics here: http://hoaxes.org/ar...alink/jim_moran"

I'll bet TCM Film Festival pass holders have an update by Wednesday. So get ready!
