War of the worlds 1953

1 post in this topic

Do you know that in 1953, when this was released, although it was shot on one by thirty seven- one and recorded in monaural sound. It was reframed for none anamorphic widescreen and was remixed for stereophonic sound for the premiere. It's unfortunate that the video presentation on t.c.m. was not restored for the way it was premiered. The stereo sound could have been extracted from the mono soundtrack. Remember Shane was shot on the small screen but was premiered in artificial widescreen and ever since then has been played as one by sixty-six by one with the remix stereo soundtrack on video and t.c.m. I guess the distributor did not want to spend the extra money and felt it wasn't worth showing it the original enhanced premiere. It could have preserved that night.
