Restored "September Storm 3D" Screening in L.A. on Sunday March 19th, 2017
Join us for an encore screening of the restored 1960 stereoscopic 3D feature film, SEPTEMBER STORM. This drama of treasure hunters exploring the Mediterranean Sea was the last 3D picture filmed in the 1950s, and the first to be released in 3-D CinemaScope.
Hoping to impress New York model Joanne Dru, sailor Asher Dann borrows his boss’s boat; con men Mark Stevens and Robert Strauss convince the couple to search for a fortune in sunken gold coins.
Director Byron Haskin is best known for the 1953 classic THE WAR OF THE WORLDS; the script is by noir legend W. R. Burnett (THE ASPHALT JUNGLE, HIGH SIERRA). The first feature to include color underwater stereoscopic 3D footage, SEPTEMBER STORM was long considered lost until the original negative elements were located for this digital restoration by the 3-D Film Archive.
