The Big Question

"En stad som brinner" / "Kartago i Flammor"

Hej Thomas!

Jag upptäckte då att den italiensk-franska peplum-filmen
"CARTHAGES EN FLAMMES" betraktas som osäker vad gäller om den någonsin någonstans visades i 70mm-kopior.

Go to Which films were probably never shown in Super Technirama 70?

Jodå, Corona Film i Sverige hade importerar en 70-kopia, som fick premiär Halmstad (av alla platser) Annandag jul 1962. Alltså december 26. Så visst har denna sword & sandal-film existerat i 70mm, alla annonser världen runt kan ju knappast ha ljugit i sin marknadsföring.

Till Malmö kom den inte alls i 70mm, eftersom Corona Films biografer i Malmö (Rio, Plaza och Grand) inte var installerade för 70-visningar. Jag tror inte ens den kom hit i 35mm, för då hade jag säkerligen gått och sett den.

Ja, det var väl allt. Keep up the good work!

Ha det gott,
Lasse W i lilla Malmö,

Dersu Uzala" / "Daleko na Zapade" (USSR) (Astoria, 25 October 1976 - no mention of 70mm)
"Mutiny on the Bounty" (Palladium, 26 December 1962 - no mention on 70mm)

Jag har inte hittat några uppgifter om att dessa filmer visats i 70mm i Sverige, så jag svarar nej.

Hälsningar Peter Andren, February 2017

Ja, visst är det intressant med Mutiny on the Bounty och Derzu Uzala. Som jag har berättat för dig, så hittade jag premiärannonserna i Dagens Nyheter, och där står absolut inget om 70mm, vilket man alltid skröt med om filmerna visades i 70. Likaså finns det inga uppgifter om att censuren i Sverige granskade några 70-kopior på de här två filmerna. (Detta enligt Wredlund/Lindfors böcker Långfilm i Sverige.)

Dessutom gick aldrig dessa filmer i 70mm i Malmö. Malmö fick alltid 70-kopior om sådana fanns tillgängliga i Sverige. Det enda undantag jag känner till är Is Paris Burning. Den var en Paramount film, och kedjan som visade deras filmer i Malmö (Grand-biograferna) hade inga 70-projektorer då. Det fick de först när nya Grand invigdes på Värnhemstorget med Antonionis Blow-Up. Senare såg jag där 70-kopior på bl a Monte Carlo or Bust, Les Demoiselles de Rochefort, Paint Your Wagon, Half a Sixpence och Mayerling.

Så om din artikel ska vara totalt "korrekt" ska du nog plocka bort Mytiny on the Bounty och Derzu Uzala från listan. Jag vågar påstå att jag är 99,9% säker på detta. Men du garderar dig bra med att skriva "no mention of 70mm". Haha! Smart!

Ha det bra Thomas, och keep up the good work!
