"The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" Remaster Trailers

Written by: in70mm.com Newswire / Cinerama News from Idaho (US).Date: 17.06.2021
As reported on these pages in October 2020, the official Cinerama Inc. and Warner Brother's. digital restoration/remaster of MGM/Cinerama's "The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" (1962) has been recently completed. Producers hope to premiere the new digital 4K master sometimes in fall of 2021.

• Go to Information about the 3-strip movie "The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm"

"The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" will be remastered in both letterbox and SmileBox formats for eventual Blu-ray and home video release from the Warner Archive Collection reported to be sometime later in 2021. The new remastered version was reconstructed from 6-perf Cinerama negatives and in some cases YCM separation masters as well as a 7-channel magnetic soundtrack print master.

A restored 4K "The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" trailer (A 1961 original MGM five-minute pre-release announcement trailer) was shown on the Cinerama screen at the annual Widescreen Weekend Festival in Bradford, UK in October 2020.

The "Grimm" trailer presented here is a shorter theatrical version which looks quite stunning. As with Warner Bros. "How The West Was Won" digital remastering back in 2008, the legendary Cinerama join lines are practically invisible with “Grimm” as well.

For those who are very familiar with the old 35mm CinemaScope version created back in 1963 on an optical printer, which has appeared multiple times on Turner Classic Movies, and years ago on laser disc this new digital restoration will appear like a completely different film as if it was shot yesterday.

Almost A Lost 3-strip Presentation

 
"The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" ran 2½ months (22.03.1972 - 08.06.1972). One of the last public 3-strip shows. An encore engagement at the Empire - Cinerama in Paris (France). Picture by Thomas Hauerslev, February 2005

"The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm"
was largely a "lost" film for many years. Short of a 2½ month encore engagement at the Empire - Cinerama in Paris (France) in 1972, some private screenings in a back-yard of a surburbian Sydney home, and occasional TV screenings on the TNT network, "Grimm" has not been seen publically in the original three-strip version for the better part of 55 years. In 2012 the Australian 3-strip Technicolor print was shipped to Bradford in the UK, for a one-off sold-out screening. "The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm" had been at the top of every Cinerama fan's wish-list, and the auditorium was sizzling in excitement. It was surely a "I was there" presentation to remember, to which in70mm.com reporter Mark Lyndon wrote:

On the evening of Saturday, April 28th 2012, delegates to the Wide Screen Weekend strand of the Bradford Film Festival were granted the rarest of rare treats, a screening of the only surviving three strip Cinerama print of “The Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm”. The IB Technicolor print had come all the way from Australia to Bradford courtesy of the patron saint of Cinerama preservation, legend, and all round good egg, John Mitchell.

This legendary “lost” Cinerama feature has held up well over the years and delegates were captivated and entranced by its old magic. For a fifty year old feel good film it still felt and looked pretty good. George Pal produced and directed the fairy tale sequences with Harry Levin for the real life drama. “The Wonderful World” is a skilfully scripted and acted production with some fine performances to enjoy from Laurence Harvey as the waifish, romantic and hopelessly impractical Wilhelm Grimm, and Karlheinz Bohm as his terminally exasperated brother Jacob.
