3-panel example after color has been restored. Click to see enlargement

The movie was produced for the Swiss Army and was shown at the Lausanne World Fair in 1964 as "Vigliant Switzerland" and in 3 x 70mm projection adding up to an spect ratio of 1 : 6,60 ... very rare "70mm Cinerama Type".

All three panels were scanned from the original and faded but mint 70mm archive prints and are now in the process of being color graded to get the original look back. We will keep you informed as the work progresses.
