superb restoration done
28 December 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

The film has been recently restored and is available through Flicker Alley on a combo DVD-bluray edition. It is a remarkable job that has been achieved. Moreover the Smilebox format used enables the viewer to have the original curved screen impression and if you have the chance as I do to view it on a home cinema system with a large screen (2.40m width as far as I'm concerned) sitting at a distance which enables you just to have the screen width in your field sight, you then get the full sensation you had in Cinerama theaters when the movie was first presented. Of course the subject and the way things are presented have aged a lot but it is also a reminder of what Paris looked like in the early 50s and being a Parisian , it brings a nostalgic reminiscence of that time when I saw Cinerama for the first time in Paris.
