Inferno 3-D Blu-Ray

The hottest new release of classic 3-D films is Inferno! Panamint Cinema has put together a great Blu-ray package featuring 20th Century Fox's 1953 3-D classic Inferno on 3-D Blu-ray.

The Inferno 3-D Blu-ray is available in both a region free and region B edition. Both editions feature the 3-D and 2-D versions. Both versions contain the same bonus features:

  • Inferno 3-D movie trailer featuring Rhonda Fleming talking about the wonders of the 3rd Dimension
  • Theatrical trailer
  • Pat Boone interviews Rhonda Fleming in 2009
  • 16 page illustrated booklet
  • 2-D and 3-D on a single disc.

We reviewed the region free edition, which comes with great graphics for the jewel case. Several color and black-and-white stills from the film are printed on the inside of the slipcover. The 16 page booklet is filled with great behind the scenes information about the 3-D filming process that took place in the Mojave Desert. There is quite a bit of historical information about the film you might not have known that is well worth reading for the 3-D enthusiast.

The booklet also includes informaton about the preservation of Inferno by Bob Furmanek of the 3-D Film Archive.

Biographical Notes
Preservation of Inferno by The 3-D Film Archive by Robert Furmanek

The film itself is a great adult adventure story about a man left to die in the desert by his wife and her lover. The 3-D filmmakers used the Mojave Desert to their advantage with lots of jagged, rocky scenery for the actors to climb through, enhancing the 3-D feel of the movie. There is one scene from the top of a bluff that gave me a little vertigo when watching it in 3-D. The scene of actress Rhonda Fleming next to the swimming pool is 3-D Technicolor awesomeness!

You can order a region free or region B copy of Inferno 3-D Blu-ray from Paramint Cinema's website.

The Inferno 3-D Blu-ray receives a "Must See 3-D™ Editor's Choice Award".

Jerry Garcia with stereo camera and stereoviews.

Apparently rock legend Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead had an interest in 3-D photography. This photo showing Garcia posing with a stereo camera and some stereoviews was posted by his family on Instagram. Thanks to George Toft for sharing this gem.
