Cinerama Color recovery examples

Where we had several areas of missing negatives in "Seven Wonders", "South Seas Adventure" as well as the next title "Search for Paradise" we were able to go to the Library of Congress original deposit Eastman color prints stored there since the mid 1950s and scan these areas off of the faded prints.

CINERAMA REMASTER PRODUCERS
Dave Strohmaier and Randy Gitsch - in conversation with Mark Lyndon
Cinerama’s future might evolve into a name on more than just a couple of theaters; Cinerama could come to mean a curved screen presentation; a noticeable distinct curved screen, perhaps not 146 degrees, but certainly more than a marginal curved screen.
Randy Gitsch (USA)
In 1990, he became one of the founding members of the Association of Moving Image Archivists and in 1999, he produced the critically acclaimed documentary on film preservation and restoration, "Keepers of the Frame"
Dave Strohmaier (USA)
By Thomas Hauerslev
This man works in Hollywood, where he sometimes presides over film presentations at the local “three-strip” cinema.

CINERAMA's 70mm LIBRARY REMASTERED
"Fortress of Peace" 70MM Remastering In 2K Digital
By Dave Strohmaier
I took both existing 70mm prints from the vaults down to Todd-AO in Hollywood for a digital transfer from the original 6 channel magnetic striped print. We brought both 70mm prints to make sure to check that at least one of them would have a usable track. A few days later I got a call from the guys at Todd AO transfer room and they said the sound on the prints was fine and the new digital track was ready for pick up.
