What if they still made movies like this?!
11 March 2003 | by (Bellevue, WA) – See all my reviews

This was actually the first Cinerama film at the Cinerama Festival that I saw. Being an original print, in fact the very last known of its kind, the color was somewhat pink throughout most of this picture. Despite the discoloration, I actually enjoyed this most of all the films I saw during the week (SFP, Windjammer & This is Cinerama). I even caught a glimpse of some reds, greens and yellows in the Royal Parade in Katmandu. To me, this represented the closest vision of the true goal of a Cinerama film - to thrill, educate and captivate. I had such fun I left the theater feeling like I had actually visited the places we went in the film. This film had it all - had it been released in summer of '57 it could have been a blockbuster!
