"South Pacific"
By David Coles
South Pacific is a 1958 American romantic musical film based on the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical South Pacific, which in turn based on James A. Michener's short-story collection Tales of the South Pacific. The film, directed by Joshua Logan, starred Rossano Brazzi, Mitzi Gaynor, John Kerr and Ray Walston in the leading roles with Juanita Hall as Bloody Mary, the part that she had played in the original stage production. The film was nominated for three Academy Awards, winning the Academy Award for Best Sound for Fred Hynes.
"Oklahoma"
By David Coles
For ten years, since the musical play "Oklahoma!" opened in New York City, March 31, 1943, the major movie companies made overtures to Rodgers and Hammerstein for the movie right of "Oklahoma!" Nothing happened until one day when both Dick and Oscar were invited to see test shots of the Todd-AO process. Then it became obvious that the movies were ready for "Oklahoma!"
"Around the World in 80 Days"
By David Coles
"Do not refer to Around the World in 80 Days as a movie. It's not a movie. Movies are something you can see in your neighbourhood theatre and eat popcorn while you're watching them....Show Around the World in 80 Days almost exactly as you would present a Broadway show in your theatre." Mike Todd

Is "Tron" filmed in 65mm?Yes, "TRON" was filmed in 65mm
By Rob Hummel
"Tron" was shot 65mm 2,2:1 aspect ratio for all scenes. 65mm color for all the "real world material," and 65mm Black and White for all the material that was later composited into the "electronic world".

Widescreen Weekend 2000 Review
By the weekend delegates
Reading through a copy of the Yorkshire Post Supplement for The Bradford Film Festival, confirms that this is an event of international significance throughout the film world, and a great accomplishment for all those involved in what must surely be an exercise of enormous complexity. Securing sponsors of such integrity, and that are willing and confident to support so worthwhile a project, surely, is initially a challenge and ultimately a triumph.
Widescreen Weekend 2000
By Thomas Hauerslev
I thought the Bradford Wide Screen Weekend 2000 was terrific. How wonderful to see the movies one made for the cinema instead of all the little multiplex houses, video or cable. As I looked at many of the scenes in “Battle of the Bulge” the thought passed through my mind - how the hell did we set up that scene with all its tanks and action?!

Todd-AO at "Sea"
By Thomas Hauerslev
Ron Fricke was very pleased to know "Baraka" was shown in a Copenhagen swim bath. It was one of his original ideas to have it shown outside regular cinemas
A Brief History of Philips Cinema
By C. G. Nijsen
The Philips Light bulb factory was founded in 1891 by Gerard Philips and Dr. Anton Philips. When the "Philips" brand became so successful, they decided to enlarge their scope from lamps only to everything electrical or electronic.

The First Oslo 70mm Festival 2000
By Sebastian Rosacker
It was the very first 70mm-festival there and it turned out to be a grand success. Not only Norwegians were there. I talked to people from Austria and England and if I´m not mistaken I even I heard some Italian there. I was there together with two friends from Malmö, Sweden. Even the Norwegian Minister of Culture paid a visit.
