"Exodus" and "West Side Story" Letters

Written by: Keith Swadkins, Cheshire, England Issue 51 - December 1997
I have a couple of questions regarding your list of 70mm productions.

"Exodus". You have this listed as Super Panavision 70 but I have always understood this movie to be a blow-up i.e. Panavision 70. I checked my trailer and it states Panavision. Halliwell and The United Artists Story state Super Panavision 70 but The International Encyclopedia lists it as Panavision 70.

"West Side Story". Here we have the same problem as all my reference books lists this as Panavision 70 and the 70mm clips I have definitely suggest it to be a blow-up. I am sure it was billed as Panavision 70 when it first came out but memory can play tricks.

Do you have definitive information on the prime photography of these two titles?
