The 1953 adventure film has received a new restoration completed by the 3-D Film Archive, LLC.
As previously reported, Kino is working on 'Those Redheads From Seattle - 3D' for Blu-ray, and now the release date has been announced as May 9.
This Technicolor Pine-Thomas production from 1953 features excellent stereoscopic photography by Oscar-winning cinematographer Lionel Lindon (Around the World in Eighty Days). Directed by Lewis R. Foster and featuring a stellar cast which includes Rhonda Fleming, Gene Barry and Agnes Moorehead, "the first 3-D musical" also contains five terrific tunes by popular recording artists Teresa Brewer, Guy Mitchell and the Bell Sisters.
Historically significant as the first widescreen production from Paramount Studios, Redheads has not been seen in 1.66:1 for more than sixty years. Meticulously restored from 35mm elements by Greg Kintz and the 3-D Film Archive, "3-D's big musical gal-stacked frolic" will be an outstanding addition to your classic 3-D Blu-ray collection.
The Blu-ray will feature 2D and 3D 1080p video and supplements will include:
- Audio Commentary by Film Historians Hillary Hess, Greg Kintz, Jack Theakston and Bob Furmanek
- 2006 Interview with Rhonda Fleming
- Before/After Restoration Demo
- Original Theatrical Trailer
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $34.95.
