I just came across this footage of the 1962 Denver Preview of "TWWOTBG".

I hope you guys "over there" can access it alright.

Here goes.....

My Brothers Grimm arrive in the mail at the weekend. What a great sound considering the movie is 50 years old.. Amazing sound from the 35mm multi channel tapes.. Well done to all concerned..

Received mine last week and listened to it right away. What a wonderful treat!!!
I am once again bowled over by the incredible CINERAMA recording techniques and sound quality. NOTHING sounds that good today!

As an adjunct, I highly reccomend the documentary CINERAMA ADVENTURE wish is included in the HOW THE WEST WAS WON boxed dvd (not the blue ray version?). In it you will hear some fine examples of the CINERAMA sound also. Heartfelt and very nostalgic it is too!

Thank you FSM for this spot of joy! Absolutely delightful!!! smile

And very fine it is, too (Cinerama Adventure) - one of the best documentaries about the cinema (IMHO) The part when Lowell Thomas says "Ladies and gentlemen, this is...Cinerama" and the tabs pull back, the screen fills - breath-taking!
And TWWOTBG, which arrived here a few days ago - breath-taking, too!

The CD is grand indeed. Also I wanted to thank CH-CD for posting the super footage of the world premiere in Denver. I have so many fond memories of the Cooper Cinerama there -- the footage was quite a treat. Thank you.

You're welcome John.
Glad you enjoyed it.

Me, too, John - great CD and I just have to commiserate on the Cooper. I didn't see any Cinerama movies there, but enjoyed big-screen movies like STAR WARS, CAPRICORN ONE and many others at that theater (and of course the Century 21 and the Continental, which still survives in Denver). Among the last movies I saw there were CLIFFHANGER and GETTYSBURG. Those were the days!

With apologies to Gloria Swanson, it's not just the movies that have gotten smaller ..

Did you notice who did the score to the documentary?

The Cooper looks like it was a wonderful theater, and the perfect setting for the full Cinerama experience.
Is it still there?

Just received this (I think my copy got delayed by the volcano ash cloud!) and what a "wonderful" melodic score it is - handsomely presented in stunning sound quality. FSM has done a fantastic job in preserving all the music from a film which has largely been disregarded - now if only Warner Bros would restore the roadshow version. I always regretted never seeing it in Cinerama when I had the chance.

... and perhaps in SmileBox format.

Thanks, Neil!

I remember that scene being particularly exciting in the theater. It still holds up rather well after all these years. Digital 3-D, eat your heart out!
