The 3-D Nudie-Cuties Collection is "Must See 3-D!"

Nudie-Cuties box art.

If you don't have The 3-D Nudie-Cuties Collection 3-D Blu-ray yet then order it today. One again the fine folks at The 3-D Film Archive and Kino Lorber have teamed up to bring another set of classic 3-D films to the market. This time its a collection of several early sexploitation films including The Bellboy and the Playgirls, Adam and Six Eves and bonus shorts.

This release does brings the 3-D version of one of the films to 3-D fans for the first time. Adam and Six Eves was filmed with the Natural Vision camera rig in 1962 but was never released in 3-D in theatres at the time of its original release. Now you can see it better than it could have ever been projected in 1962. The meticulous quality taken by The 3-D Film Archive to restore and improve everything it touches is apparent once again. You can download several high-resolution images from the Kino Lorber website.

Nudie-Cuties were popular in grindhouse theaters in the early 1960’s but they were eventually replaced with more explicit fare. 3-D was a natural for this genre with such titillating promises as “A girl in your lap” and “They dance right off the screen into your arms.”

For The 3-D Nudie-Cutie Collection the 3-D Film Archive has restored two rare features from this era of sexploitation. The Bellboy and the Playgirls (1962) stars June “The Bosom” Wilkinson and includes new scenes directed by 22-year-old Francis Ford Coppola, including a finale in “The New Depth Perception.” Adam and Six Eves (1962) was filmed with the venerable Natural Vision camera rig in 1962 but was never released in 3-D.

The collection also includes two Golden Age 3-D short subjects: Love for Sale (1953) features the gorgeous Bella Starr and Beauty in 3rd Dimension is a newly curated collection of Figure Studies in Kodachrome Stereo from 1951.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban Prototype Lenticular Poster

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Axkaban poster art.

A seller asked a starting price of $18,000 in a Facebook movie poster auction group for a prototype Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban lenticular movie poster. The poster measures 25.5" x 40".

Harry Potter's long suffering godfather Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) is depicted on this amazing one sheet prototype that was never issued by Warner Brothers. In a brilliant marketing ploy, Warner Brothers created this poster to mimic the "Wanted" posters used in the movie itself. What was exciting about those, is that you could see Sirius laughing with insanity on the poster and Warner Brothers tried to duplicate a motion effect here. As one moves back and forth before this poster, the image of Black actually begins to disappear.

Only six of these full-size prototypes were created at a facility in Michigan and Warner Brothers decided it was too expensive to put them into full production so the project was dropped. This is not the small size lenticular produced for the lobby standees.

In a Nov. 18 and 19, 2011 auction, the 25.5" x 40" poster sold at Heritage Auctions for $3,883.75. On April 8, 2018 a 25.5" x 40" poster sold for $17,925. The next sale on March 23 and 24, 2019 brought a $12,000 winning bid. Another one of the one-sheet posters is scheduled to be in the Heritage Auctions Movie Posters Signature Auction to be held March 21 and 22, 2020.

A smaller 17.25" x 25" version sold for $504 on Dec. 2, 2018.
