The Professor, helped by his flying robot M.A.X., tries to show us the history of 3-D film, and his newest innovation, Real-O-Vision (ride films). But his hardware keeps breaking down, particularly when he's trying to introduce a music video of Elvira. Written by

While the title is clearly intended to be "Encounter in the Third Dimension," the actual on-screen title includes a typo generated by M.A.X., the first of many malfunctions. MAX tries to fix it, but destroys the title in the process. See more »
The 3-D in this film is phenomenal as is the history of stereoscopic imaging. Samples of turn-of-the-century stereocards, 1950's B movies, and recent attractions at Universal Studios and elsewhere give a tantalizingly brief overview of the art, the technical hurdles and how they have been overcome. The finale with Elvira is superb. A roller coaster ride through the center of the earth is also memorable. My only regret is that the film was not twice as long.
