Flicker Alley:
This is Cinerama

From: Robert Amick <>
Subject: Windjammer release on Blue-Ray

Dear Mr. Hauerslev,


I just received a Blu-ray of "Windjammer: the Voyage of the Christian Radich" from Amazon. The production is just magnificent and brought back so many great memories of seeing it when I was a teenager.

Please accept my profound gratitude for the very high quality restoration which can now be enjoyed by today's
audiences, many of whom have never seen the original film in theatres.

You, Mr. Strohmaier, and all the dedicated professionals and artists have performed a wonderful service for so many in preserving this priceless treasure.

I wrote a review of the film on the Amazon website with five stars. Thanks very much for your exceptional dedication and efforts in restoring this wonderful creation.

Best wishes,
Bob Amick
