Oskar Fischinger, stereographic painter and inventor of the music video in the 1920s, created a forty-second Stereo Film in 1952 as a test on 35mm film; it received its public premiere here in a theatrical setting. Re- Converging in Time 37 markable Louis Lumière stereoscopic footage from 1935 was projected in twin-strip format depicting a mother and child at play. This unique 3-D film was originally shot and projected with an unusual horizontal 35mm film format. Deep Spaces of the Westerns There were many 3-D westerns in the film festivals, and they demonstrated the unique use of real environmental space the genre offers the stereoscopic filmmaker.

The 3-D boom in the 1950s was short-lived, from November 1952 to spring 1954. When 20th Century Fox premiered The Robe in CinemaScope in September 1953, the writing was on the wall. Many films photographed in 3-D, like Alfred Hitchcock’s Dial M for Murder, were released flat in 1954. Herbert L. Strock’s science fiction feature, GOG, had limited 3-D play dates in June 1954. Many of the 3-D films released flat had the left eye and right eye elements shipped out separately so the 3-D elements were lost.

As a result, there is a refreshingly fluid sculptural quality in the stereoscopic imagery. Director of photography Lucien Ballard, ASC, made a fine use of the 20th Century dual 35mm Clear-Vision 3-D rig built by Grover Laub and Sol Halprin in filming Inferno (July 29, 1953), a crime story with Mr. Carson (Robert Ryan) left to die in the desert by his scheming wife (Rhonda Fleming) and her lover (William Lundigan).
