FORMAT:  Dual 35mm
Price: $18.00

Colorful, two-fisted Mexican Revolution drama from legendary Western director Budd Boetticher (7 MEN FROM NOW, THE TALL T) in his early Universal Studios period, with rugged miner Van Heflin mixing it up with revolutionaries while trying to win CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON’s Julia Adams.   Boetticher was apparently desperate to get out of his Universal contract, so he set up a dynamite explosion for the film that shattered windows a half mile away and made the L.A. papers!

+ short:  HAWAIIAN NIGHTS (1954, Universal 20 min.)
CAST: MAMIE VAN DOREN, PINKY LEE
DIRECTED BY: WILL COWAN
COLOR:   B&W
FORMAT:  Dual 35mm

This was one of the true discoveries of the 2006 World 3-D Film Expo — this short with Fifties pin-up goddess Mamie van Doren doesn’t appear in any listings of 3-D titles; it was shot but never released in the format, and this is only its second screening in L.A. in 3-D, ever!

(Please note that all features projected in dual-35mm have a 15 min. intermission.)
