The Official 1953 Trailer
A William Cameron Menzies Film
The Maze is a 1953 atmospheric horror film in stereoscopic 3D, starring Richard Carlson, Veronica Hurst and Hillary Brooke. It was directed by William Cameron Menzies and distributed by Allied Artists Pictures. This was to be the second 3D film designed and directed by William Cameron Menzies, who was known as a director with a very "dimensional" style (e.g. many shots are focused in layers). This was his final film as production designer and director.
Filming began on April 20, 1953, with Richard Carlson and Veronica Hurst in the lead roles. Veronica Hurst, a young English actress under contract to Associated British Pictures Corporation (with which Allied Artists had a co-production arrangement), arrived in the U. S. three days before production started. She told the press, “The three-dimensional motion picture is very new to me. Some 3-D films have been shown recently in London and everyone seems very enthusiastic. But I was so busy these last few weeks I have seen none of them. I’m looking forward to getting the 3-D initiation treatment this week. I’m jolly well interested to see how I look in all three angles!”
