CinemaScope musical short big on color and composition
This one reel short is sort of a primer for using the new widescreen process, CinemaScope. A full orchestra is photographed from many angles and distances as it performs this popular musical overture. Reds, blues and lavenders are richly photographed and the performance is competent. Included as a special feature on the SILK STOCKINGS DVD. The purpose no doubt was not only to entertain between features, but to instruct cinematographers how they could successfully utilize the new widescreen process, as well as instructing production designers how to select and blend color pallets, considering the clarity one could obtain in the all-encompassing long shots that were then possible.
