    Unfortunately, I'm in New Jersey so I won't be able to attend this showing either. I did see the new digital restoration in 3-D at the Academy in LA back in 2007 and have mixed feelings. It looked good but the system they were using had tinted glasses that altered a color a bit. In addition, after having seen about 40 of the 50 Golden Age features in dual-strip 35mm Polaroid, I must say the digital image was lacking the brightness and clarity that you would have with dual 35mm prints.

    Dear friends, I just recently heard about this site and wanted to join and say hello. It looks like a great place to discuss Mr. Wayne and his incredible body of work. I appreciate many of the nice comments about my 3-D research and restoration efforts. Thank you for all of the kind words. I hadn't realized this before but it's an interesting bit of trivia: HONDO was Warner Bros. first widescreen movie!
