As of June 1985, over 600 films have been mixed in Dolby Stereo, averaging approximately 120 releases per year during the past two years. Along the same lines, the use of Dolby 70mm prints by major Hollywood studios has been steadily increasing over the past few years.

By Larry Blake
The release in 1977 of George Lucas' Star Wars was to the Dolby Stereo System and stereo film mixing what The Jazz Singer had been to Vitaphone and film sound 50 years earlier: it simultaneously brought the system to the attention of both the film industry and the general public.

The Hateful Eight is a Wonderful Cinematic Experience for the true Cinefile
By Tyler Purcell
It was clearly made with the heart's of many others like myself, who strive to keep shooting film and keep it alive for future generations. The shooting crew, team over at Panavision, the great finishing guys at FotoKem and DGA projectionist, all did an amazing job making this film. Everything came together flawlessly, Quentin's vision was a complete and utter success.
Mesdames et messieurs, voici le Cinerama!
By Anders M Olsson
A few years ago, when the first Cinerama travelogs came out on DVDs and Blu-rays, the last thing on people's minds would have been localized versions. So with great surprise I found out that "This is Cinerama" and "Windjammer" have both been released on Blu-ray and DVD in France with French subtitles this past summer.
The Hateful Eight may be the start of a welcome back, or not!
Paulo Roberto P. Elias
Tarantino said in his own words that inside modern multiplex theaters he feels that he is in front of a large TV set. He felt, that we need to bring back the best method to capture images on film, and that obviously is by photographing in 65 mm negatives AND projecting the result in a very large screen.

Playback of magnetic sound tracks on 70mm cinema prints at the Schauburg
By Clemens Scherer
At the Schauburg cinema in Karlsruhe the decision was made to have new sound heads manufactured, not the usual ones, but with an updated position of the pickups to reflect the average shrinkage of the prints. Running over these sound heads, all the tracks are oscillating more symmetrically to their pickups. One could consider in addition to have new guidance rollers manufactured, optimized for the now smaller prints.

Reflections on the 60th Anniversary of Todd-AO screening of Oklahoma
By Dick Whitney
I began working at American Optical 41 years ago, and today I work for Zeiss, which is now sponsoring the Museum. They purchased AO’s eyeglass business 10 years ago. My Father, Donald Whitney, began working at AO in 1947 in ophthalmic lens design. He was hired by John Davis, who later would be involved in Todd–AO.
"What's On" with Udo Heimansberg
Looking through a collection of old dust covered boxes I've found some older "What's On"- Issues from my trips to London in 1969 and 1971/72. My first trip to London was in August 1969. Of course my main reason was not at all sightseeing but visiting record shops to buy soundtrack albums and going to the movies, especially those running 70mm films. I didn't care much about “Swinging London”- which I regret today…

A Hunter of Light in 65mm
By Michael Fatali
I have been a hunter of light in the American landscape for nearly thirty-years now. I have been very lucky to acquire several 65mm cameras. My experiences of capturing images with 65mm has really just begun. Seven years it took for me to build the cameras, cranes, dollies, MOCO systems and even a Cinebulle to move the cameras into some amazing remote and rugged wildernesses.
By Bob Whearley
A crew from Panavision Inc. mounted $25.000 worth of camera gear on a Cyclone Racer car at the Nu-Pike last week. They were shooting some spectacular action footage to show to potential buyers of the 65-mm. wide-screen process. The cameramen, headed by John R. Moore, executive vice president of Panavision, then climbed aboard the cars and spent an entire afternoon hanging on for dear life.
Is there still a Future for 65mm Filming and Original 70mm prints?
By Johan Wolthuis
Let us hope and emphasize that all cinema directors, their projection supervisors and other staff members will do their utmost to handle the new 70mm prints with the highest possible care to prevent any damage on these new unique 70mm prints with Datasat (DTS) time code. So we will be able to watch these for a long time without any scratches ! Not only in the United States, but also in Europe there is still a lot of interest in 70mm film.
High impact immersive widescreen filmmaking with Douglas Trumbull
Interviewed by Tony Earnshaw
I have discovered that if you embrace digital technology from a new perspective and you say, ‘Let’s just get rid of all the historical artefacts and beliefs of what an image is or what it should look like and start over and do it all digitally and take advantage of high resolution cameras that are available and that very people use, the high resolutions projectors that are available that very people use and take advantage of the fact that the digital projectors that are in tens of thousands of movie theatres can run at 144fps and no one’s using it.
Wide Screen Weekend 2015
By Mark Lyndon
Having been cancelled, for reasons which remain unclear, the Wide Screen Weekend strand of the sadly defunct Bradford International Film Festival, returned triumphantly to the Pictureville Cinema, following intense behind the scenes lobbying of the Science Museum hierarchy. The Picturehouse organisation can feel justly proud of their achievement.

Richard Vetter Passed Away
By Robert Weisgerber
With all the trials and tribulations that Dick went through over the years in Hollywood he always believed firmly in the 70mm format and the value it brought to feature films, yesterday, today and tomorrow. He was extremely knowledgeable and was willing to share it all, but most importantly a true gentleman. We will all miss him!

David Samuelson: A Lifetime with the Movies

Cinerama, Dave Strohmaier and the "We have all seen it as a kid" thing
By Thomas Hauerslev
e went to see "Seven Wonders of the World" in 1957, It was an interesting and very unique movie experience, because because seeing that in the widescreen format was kind of mind boggling. That is probably why Cinerama lasted so long, because it was so different. Not only did it create a wide screen in the cinema, but it was different on its own right, and people felt they were moving with the theatre.
2015 Widescreen Weekend Introduction
By Wolfram Hannemann
To get the look he wanted for the film, director Norman Jewison told Director of Photography Oswald Morris, to shoot the film in an earthy tone. Morris saw a woman wearing brown nylon hosiery, thought "That's the tone we want," asked the woman for the stockings on the spot, and shot the entire film with a stocking over the lens. Morris did shoot the film in anamorphic Panavison on 35mm film stock and it was blown up to 70mm for roadshow engagements.
Interview with producer Randy Gitsch
By Thomas hauerslev
Cinerama has not played here in years. Many, many years, and you can now get a clue as to the excitement of the live experience, seeing it in a real theatre on a big screen, and enjoy that experience. It is very theatrical. There is a lot of Showmanship in Cinerama and this is a chance to go back to a theatre and learn about what that was like.
By Udo Heimansberg
The music for BATTLE OF THE BULGE was his only score recorded in full stereophonic sound- and also his last one! In 1967 Warner records published a soundtrack album featuring the original recordings, but only about 40 minutes of music, including the infamous “Tank Men's Song”. The LP quickly disappeared, became a collector's item sold at high prices. There was a Japanese Vinyl re-issue in the 80s and a CD in the 90s, also from Japan. Beside a long playing record of “THE NIGHT OF THE IGUANA” no other works by Benjamin Frankel were available- until 1998!
The Passing of Brian Guckian, Ireland
By Mark Lyndon
Over the years, our friendship grew, extending to my wife Margaret. We were looking forward to our reunion with Brian and were deeply shocked and saddened by the tragic news from Dublin. Brian achieved much in his tragically short life. He was a passionate advocate for film, at a time when film exhibition was becoming increasingly rare, less valued and appreciated. A co founder of the 70mm workshop, his scholarship and research made a considerable contribution to our knowledge of the subject.
Ken Annakin. Director in Todd-AO and Ultra Panavision 70
Von Thomas Hauerslev
Doch was die Entscheidung angeht, die „Fliegenden Kisten“ in Todd-AO zu drehen, so war dies einfach die logische Wahl. Es war damals das größte Filmformat und ich wusste, dass ich die Leinwand mit vielen Menschen und Flugzeugen füllen wollte. Wirklich beeindruckend sind nun diese winzigen Flugzeuge in einem riesigen leeren Himmel, und das erreicht man nur mit 70mm.
"Push the button Max!"
By Thomas Hauerslev
All this in 70MM would not be the same without the Schauburg with its rich history, red curtains and curved screen. From the box-office lady who welcomes you in a friendly voice, to the rare GONG before the film begins, or the exhibited DP70 projector in the foyer.

All dies in 70mm wäre nicht dasselbe ohne die Schauburg mit ihrer ereignisreichen Vergangenheit, den roten Vorhängen und der gekrümmten Leinwand. Von der Dame an der Kasse, die sie freundlich begrüßt, bis zum seltenen GONG zu Vorführungsbeginn oder dem ausgestellten DP70-Projektor im Foyer.

Todd-AO Festival Film Introductions, 2015
By Wolfram Hannemann
Welcome to the 11th Todd-AO 70mm film festival. With our intros we want to give our projection team enough time to perfectly lace up those big, wide rolls of film in our DP70. Beware! It will be one of the most colourful festivals we had in recent years. That means that we won’t be just treated to red or magenta, but to real colours – thanks to two brand new 70mm prints, two Orwo prints and two post 1982 prints. But don’t panic: you will also be able to see those unique faded prints as well! You see, we got everything covered!
My 47-year Odyssey with "2OO1"
By Edward Oines
I first saw '2OO1' as a not quite 14 year old in January 1969. It was being shown at the smallest theater in Sioux Falls, SD, and was leaving in 2 days, and I had to convince my mother to let my then 18 year old brother to take me on a school night. My memories were mainly of being struck by how realistic everything looked, when compared to Star Trek. I was hooked

George Florence and 70mm at The Astor
By Eric White
George Florence, the cinema's long-time proprietor, has a deep passion for film in general and 70mm presentation in particular. He considers film to be superior as a medium to anything similar, particularly in the area of sound reproduction. Magnetic analogue recording and reproduction gives superior results to digital processes. Many digital remixes are inferior and George fears that unique original four and six track mixes for classic films may be lost.

The man with the camera. Coburg's film historian
Manfred Romboy
Jürgen A. Brückner, born in 1941, virtually inherited the passion for films. In 1938 his father, Rudolf Brückner, a factory owner in Coburg, bought a Siemens film camera. His father bought the camera so that he could film both of his sons at the time. It was no surprise that the crafty Jürgen managed to get his father´s camera´s up and running when he was a child. This meant that much of his fathers stock of undeveloped film got drastically reduced!

My father never really talked about the motion picture business
Cyrus Todd in Conversation
I worked in the motion picture business for about four years in New York, and then I moved back to Ireland became a chef. I did that for about twenty years. My legs have gotten old and I decided to find something else. And a friend of a friend said I should get into the appliance business – there was somebody looking for help, and instead of standing behind a stove and cooking, now I stand in front of them and sell them!
A musical Journey around the World in fantastic stereophonic Cinerama Sound
By Gerhard Witte
As I already owned the musical scores of several Cinerama films I thought, "most likely a simple compilation of the scores". My guess was wrong. This new 2-CD set is really a surprise and a listening pleasure. It assembles the musical highlights of all 5 Cinerama travelogue film scores together, cleverly compiled and digitally restored from the 35mm magnetic Cinerama films.

Letters and Dust Devils
Susan Jane Todd in Conversation with Thomas Hauerslev

My father had the difficult job of following in his father’s footsteps. I think my father always wanted to be a philosopher: that was his Major in college. He loved fine art – painting and sculpture. And good literature. But he got stuck with "Scent of Mystery" this because his father died. They were just about to work on a Todd-AO movie – "Don Quixote". He couldn’t do it because he was in so much grief – so he made this project.
Re-constructing “The Best of Cinerama”. And a new restoration of “This is Cinerama”
By Dave Strohmaier
This title that was created with select clips from all the shows, except “Windjammer”. The postproduction process was performed at the Forum Theater in Los Angeles and was a bit unusual. The Cinerama editors assembled the work picture in a few months using old existing prints of the five travelogues, then cleaned and rejuvenated at Pix Fix. That’s why no negatives were ever located for “Best of” in the vaults.

New Curved Harkness 70mm Screen For Schauburg
By Thomas Hauerslev
The Schauburg Cinerama in Karlsruhe will get a new screen installed early in September 2015. The current screen was 9 year old and we needed to replace it. Since we can take the screen aside and use the back stage for live performances too, wear and tear was starting to show on our screen. It is a Harkness Perlux 140 with a 1,4 gain which gives the most neutral colors and most pleasing look of all screen types and helps to eliminate the cross reflections of the deeply curved Cinerama screen at the Schauburg.

Restoration of "Vertigo", 1996"
By Universal Pictures
Vertigo was originally shot in VistaVision, created by Paramount in the early 50's as a non-anamorphic, wide-screen alternative to Twentieth Century Fox's CinemaScope. But VistaVision is no longer utilized and the team had to undertake a restoration which would ultimately turn a 1:85 VistaVision negative into a 70mm print. Now, a whole new generation of moviegoers will have the opportunity to be swept away by Vertigo on the big screen in 70mm.
65mm / 70mm Film Scanning in the UK

David Samuelson: A Lifetime with the Movies
By Lyndon and Hauerslev
I was a cinema newsreel cameraman, with Fox Movietone. We covered the Ascot horse racing and I was assigned to film when the Queen went down and talked to all the jockeys. We had to film that from quite a long way away, because CinemaScope was about wide screen, it didn’t cross their minds to equip me with a long lens. The only CinemaScope lens I had was a wide one, and the Queen was tiny, a long way away. I took the decision, to go down from my assigned location to the ground level and film the Queen.

Der Mann mit der Kamera. Coburgs Filmchronist
Von Manfred Romboy
Coburgs Filmchronist von Manfred Romboy, DGPh Lust am Film wurde dem 1941 geborenen Jürgen A. Brückner quasi in die Wiege gelegt. 1938 hatte sich sein Vater Rudolf Brückner, ein Coburger Fabrikant, eine Siemens-Filmkamera gekauft. Es versteht sich, dass als beliebte Filmobjekte auch seine beiden Söhne herhalten mussten. Eventuell hat das katzenartige Abschnurren der väterlichen Doppel 8-Kamera schon im Unterbewusstsein des kleinen Jürgen die Grundlagen seiner später so ausgeprägten Filmaffinität gelegt.
DP70 Update from Australia
By Phillip Grace

Corrections to your page DP70s in Australia. The 70mm projectors at Horsham, Victoria are not DP70. They are Cinemeccanica Victoria X. They were originally installed new in the Chelsea Theatre, Melbourne, then moved a little way down the street to the Forum Twin Cinemas (Cinema One) also in Melbourne, and screened a lot of 70mm on both sites. When the Forum Twin closed in 1982 or 1983 the Victoria X machines were sold to Horsham.

Goodbye 70mm IMAX Projector
By Vaughan, McGregor and van der Post
When IMAX opened at the NMeM in 1983, a little over 10 years after the IMAX technology premiered in Japan, it was the first ever IMAX cinema in Europe and contained Britain’s largest cinema screen. This summer we say goodbye to the good old 70mm IMAX projector at Picturehouse at National Media Museum, as it will be converted to digital and the cinema will be refurbished.

Many films got applause from young and old alike and word-of-mouth was excellent following each performance.

Omar Sharif Passed Away
By Mark Lyndon
We must bid him a very fond farewell. For 70mm aficionados, "Lawrence of Arabia", regarded by many as the greatest film ever made, was a true triumph of the art and science of cinema. "Doctor Zhivago", was a rôle which made him the brightest star in the film firmament, adored and idolised by millions. He left this world, like his great Zhivago, after a fatal heart attack.

Für den 70mm Breitfilm kommen große Bildwände in Betracht, die auch möglichst voll ausgenutzt werden sollen. Dabei treten hinsichtlich der Brennweitenfestlegung Schwierigkeiten auf. Hier hilft das T-Kiptagon, bei dem die Möglichkeit besteht, die Brennweiten mit einem entsprechenden Vorsatz zu verändern, und zwar um ca. ± 8 %.
70mm-Superpanorama Amüsement
By Deutsches Filmmuseum
Das Kino des Deutschen Filmmuseums zeigt im Juli vier 70mm-Filme – eine seltene Gelegenheit, die man sich nicht entgehen lassen sollte. Bis Anfang der 1970er Jahre war 70mm das Format für aufwändige Großproduktionen. Nach wie vor gibt es Liebhaber des Formats: Paul Thomas Anderson drehte 2012 Teile von "THE MASTER" mit einer 65mm-Kamera, Christopher Nolan nutzte für den Dreh von "INTERSTELLAR" sowohl 35mm-Kameras als auch 65mm-IMAXKameras und sorgte dafür, dass sein Film zusätzlich zum digitalen Format auch als 70mm-Analogfilm in die Kinos kam.
The German Travelogue "Flying Clipper – Traumreise unter weißen Segeln" in Germany and in the USA
By Gerhard Witte
"Flying Clipper", perhaps a German answer to the successful Cinemiracle movie "Windjammer", had its World Premiere at Munich's "Royal-Palast" on Goetheplatz on Wednesday, December 19, 1962. The travelogue is the first German feature film production shot in the new wide-gauge film process called "MCS 70" which had been developed by Modern Cinema Systems (MCS) Film KG.

“Inherent Vice,” directed by Paul Thomas Anderson
Press by Warner Brothers

“Inherent Vice,” an adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s seventh and funniest novel, is the seventh film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson—and the very first film adaptation ever of Pynchon’s legendarily inventive, culturally kaleidoscopic work. A surf noir, the story dives headlong into the smoky haze and neon afterglow of the American counterculture via a psychedelic spin on the classic detective yarn.
“Interstellar” directed by  Christopher Nolan
Press by Warner Brothers
Acclaimed filmmaker Christopher Nolan directs an international cast in “Interstellar.” With our time on Earth coming to an end, a team of explorers undertakes the most important mission in human history: travelling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars.
Panavision and the Resurrecting of Dinosaur Technology
By Tyler Purcell
After seeing the 70mm test footage, there was a rousing applause. The next thing we saw was a DCP version of the material and it really shows how proper film projection truly trumps digital. The blacks were mushy and undefined, the highlights were clearly peaking and the whole image looked flat. All of that beautiful depth seen in the film projection was lost. We sadly realized this format, developed in the 50's, is still better then all the money we've thrown at conventional digital projection.
June 1990, Restored "Lawrence of Arabia" premieres in Copenhagen, Denmark

The restored "Lawrence of Arabia" opened in 70mm and six-track Dolby Stereo SR at the prestigious Imperial Bio, 31. May.

The 2015 European Cinerama Festival Tour in Oslo
By Anders M Olsson
I've seen these films many times, but only on deeply curved screens, and on my own smallish TV. Never before had I seen them on a large flat screen. When seated at least halfway back into the cinema, the smilebox process made the illusion of a curved screen complete. If I hadn't known better, I could have sworn that I was actually sitting in front of a curved screen.

70MM in Varnsdorf – eine neue Hoffnung?
Von Ulrich Rostek
Was macht der Abhängige, wenn ihm das Suchtmittel ausgeht? Er sucht sich neue Quellen. Nachdem das traditionelle Widescreen Weekend in Bradford auf den Herbst verschoben wurde und ich das 70mm-Event in Krnov aus terminlichen Gründen leider nicht wahrnehmen konnte, war ich froh, auf „In70mm.com“ die Ankündigung eines bislang noch nicht in Erscheinung getretenen 70-mm-Festivals im tschechischen Varnsdorf zu entdecken. Gespannt machte ich mich auf einen wieder einmal weiten Weg.
70MM in Varnsdorf - a new hope?
Ulrich Rostek
Hard times for a 70mm addict. The traditional Widescreen Weekend in Bradford was shifted to October and business kept me away from Krnov. So I felt happy, when an up till then unknown event was announced on “In70mm.com”. Once again I took a long journey only to watch a couple of movies. Imbedded in a beautiful landscape not too far away from either the German or the Polish border the Czech smalltown Varnsdorf is not the center of the world and tourist attractions are somewhat limited.

By Randy Gitch

Visiting 70MM Cinemas of London's West End, September 1990
By Thomas Hauerslev
In September 1990, I visited London to see and photograph the 70mm cinemas. Looking at the pictures from London in 1990 so many years later inspired me to make a gallery to share the images for the first time. Maybe someone will see them and enjoy looking back at a time when things were different, and of course - a lot better. In fact, at least 70mm better.

"We keep you alive to serve this ship. Row well, and live."
By Morgan Montague

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, my wife and I decided to make a train trip up to Seattle from Portland. Our intent, being fans of Charlton Heston's films, and "Ben-Hur", in particular, was to take advantage of the 1 day showing at the newly upgraded Cinerama Theatre. And Seattle is such a great weekend destination for fun and culture!

11. Todd-AO 70mm-Festival 2015
KARLSRUHE, May 2015 / in70mm.com news. We have launched the 11th instalment of the “Todd-AO 70mm Festival“ to be held from 9 - 11 October 2015 at the Schauburg Cinerama in Karlsruhe, Germany. For three days in October Filmtheater Schauburg celebrates the world of LARGE FORMAT film, by offering a series of epic films in 70mm - the HD of film formats.

We feel our 2015 program has it all: Space adventures, Musical, Drama, War, Nazis, Religion, Music, Songs, Mystery, Cars, Chases, Panzer, Adventure, Revenge and true love. Bring your family, your children, your grand mother to see the films again in a big cinema.

One of very few original cinemas, still equipped with 70mm projectors. The huge screen is 18 meters wide, curved and covered by a "Cinerama red" curtain. It’s the perfect framework to present 70mm in the splendour of 6-track magnetic sound. For 2015, a brand new Harkness screen will be installed prior to the festival. No expenses are spared to give you the very best experience.

Cinerama 70mm short subject remastering work completed
By Dave Strohmaier
The 6-track magnetic prints were certainly faded to the usual Eastman color magenta, and we realized that at some point we should do a digital makeover to protect the assets. Tom March and I went to the vaults last January to pull the titles and examine them for overall condition. We could see that the fading was even more severe that when the prints were shown a few years back. Since no negatives were ever located we would have to relay on color recovery techniques to try to rebuild back as much color as possible.
An Incol 70/35 projection booth as found
By Paulo Roberto P. Elias
When the 70mm craze of the 1960’s was in progress a significant number of regular 35mm theaters refurbished their installations to give shelter to the relative more complex 70mm projection system. It took quite a long time but when the demise of the 70mm format exhibition started there was a coincidental decadence of the so-called street theaters and palace theaters that was due to the financial burden imposed by public administrators and service providers to major exhibitors and independent theater owners.
Portland, Oregon USA 70mm Update
By Morgan Montague
The Hollywood Theatre in Portland has completed its 70mm restoration project and to great success. Large format film began running again through the projectors at the cinema, with 5 Sold Out performances of "2OO1: A Space Odyssey". Originally, only 1 performance was scheduled, which sold out immediately. To meet the demand another performance was added and it too sold out. And then another, and so on. Community response was simply overwhelming.
Movies with artificial smells in cinemas

There was a race to get smells into films at the end of 1950s between the "Smell-O-Vision!" and the "AromaRama" processes.

"AromaRama" had been unveiled in the DeMille Theatre in New York with the movie's premiere on December 08, 1959.

The Todd-AO Festival at the Schauburg is not only pretzel, sekt, schnitzel and Hoepfner's hefewize, it is indeed about going to the movies in style. An experience all by itself. Seeing the films at the Schauburg like seeing the films as they were originally presented - in a big cinema, on a a huge curved screen with red curtains and a Gong. It's all about showmanship and presentation, and very few cinemas do it better than the staff of the Schauburg.

"An Homage To D W Griffith" A short Film In Ultra Panavision 70

The last Ultra Panavision 70 film that was released was reportedly KHARTOUM in 1966. As it turns out, there was one more Ultra Panavision 70 short subject that was made over 20 years later. In 1988, the equipment and lenses were used for a special short subject that was also the only time the format used a speed of 30 frames per second rather than the normal 24 frames per second format.
70mm Presentations - Letters from Directors
By Paul Rayton

Back in the heydays of 70mm exhibition of movies, it was not uncommon for a projectionist to open a shipping case of a 70mm title and find a "personal" letter from someone associated with the film. Typically it would be signed by the Director, or the Producer. Subjects addressed would be things like the illumination level on screen, and the audio playback level. Apparently many cinemas typically ran sound a bit too low. These messages were typically reminding us projectionists to run the sound at the "Dolby Standard" of a fader setting of "7".

This automatically directed that track to left, right and rear auditorium speakers, as appropriate, during the showing.

"Search for Paradise" Cue Sheet
The soundtrack of a Cinerama feature could be formatted as 6-track stereo, with mono surround or as 7 or even 8 track stereo with stereo surrounds. In some films surround format would change within the feature. The projectionist would follow a cue sheet indicating when sound channels had to be changed during the performance. This is an example from Malmø in Sweden.

A restauração de Oklahoma, parte II

Sendo este um esforço que beneficia o resgate da história tecnológica do cinema, a presença deste set no mercado brasileiro deveria ser obrigatória, mas a Fox local ainda não se pronunciou a respeito.

More importantly, the new restoration manages to put the colour balance back into the film. Hues and saturation are retrieved in perfect harmony, to the extent of making the picture look like new.
