Cinema Retro Magazine Goes Curved in Issue #31 - A 5-STAR Magazine
Christmas is finally here

The 70mm Newsletter

Nobody is more excited than me when a new issue of Cinema Retro magazine arrives in my mailbox. I read every issue from cover to cover. Maybe not from A to Z, but I pick it up and read almost all of it every time I have some spare time. Jumping back and forth through the magazine, letting myself be surprised. It is always enjoyable, and I cannot think of any other magazine which cover the same material. As it is written on the cover, Cinema Retro magazine is the essential guide to movies of the 60s & 70s. In every issue editors Dave Worral and Lee Pfeiffer, and their musketeer friends of film lovers, are taking their readership on a treasured journey down movie memory lane.

Cinema Retro is always a reminder to me of films I still have to see. Don't tell anyone that I still haven't seen any of Pam Grier's films, "To Kill a Mockingbird" or "Bandolero". But its wonderful to think, that I have so much to look forward to - if I ever get the time. Until then, I have to read about the films in Cinema Retro.

I'm a big fan of the Bond movies - especially the early classics until 1980. Since seeing my first 007 flick at the age of 10 in 1973, I have followed the series with great enthusiasm and loyalty. Cinema Retro is the ultimate companion to the adventures of James Bond. In this issue a 4-page report about the filming in Portugal of my favorite 007 adventure; "OHMSS" from 1969.

It's not only films, human interest, interviews or reviews, it's also about the technical aspects and photographic techniques of movie making and exhibition. In issue #31 you will find a spectacular 2-page article about VistaVision, a large format system of the 50s and 60s which were used to film many of Paramount's films.

Cinema Retro is essential reading. The latest issue is no exception. At a glance, a loving tribute by Lee Pfeiffer to the late director Brian G. Hutton, a 5-page tribute to Pam Grier, a massive coverage of "Farewell My Lovely", and much much more. As well as the usual contributions from Raymond Benson, DVD, books and music CD reviews of films from that era, Gareth Oven takes us back to Pinewoods Past plus the usual entertaining articles about long forgotten (or even lost) films (some master pieces, some not) of the 60s and 70s. And oh, I forgot, I simply love the layout, with pictures and small text everywhere. Well done Dave!

64 pages in full (Techni)color and NO advertising, except the back cover page which is occupied by and shows a picture from "The Great Race". That sort of advertising is always OK, since the film was shown in 70mm when it was released. It's amazing how the editors can keep costs down to avoid the usual adverts in magazines like this - oh, I'm sorry. There are NO magazines like this. Cinema Retro magazine is unique, and if you are tired of (or don't give a dam about) contemporary films - and adore the films from the 60s and 70s, THIS is THE magazine for you.

CINEMA RETRO is published three times a year. See the web site for details.
