Did You Know?


Chapman's "multiple dynamic images" process inspired the opening scene in his 1968 film The Thomas Crown Affair. The split-screen technique, where a number of small screens, all full motion, move around the larger screen, was also used in The Boston Strangler (1968) and Airport (1970). See more »
