  • 4.1
On the evening of September 30, 1952, the shape and sound of movies changed forever with the introduction of Cinerama. This unique widescreen process was launched when television was deemed as a major threat to U.S. film exhibition. Fred Waller, Cinerama's creator, had indeed labored that long on his dream of a motion picture experience that would recreate the full range of human vision. It used three cameras and three projectors on a curved screen 146º deep. Nominated for Best Music at the 1954 Academy Awards®.

I saw this movie years old in Detroit, Michigan as a child and could barely remember it until the sequence at the roller coaster jogged my memory. The second half of the film was a real treat with its patriotic treatment of America to the tune of songs like "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." I cannot imagine a Hollywood film producer doing a movie like this today, but in the 1950s this was typical Hollywood movie magic. Five Stars!
