THE BEST 70MM PROCESS
10 April 2001 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

I got to see THE MIRACLE OF TODD-AO when OKLAHOMA! was re-released in the sixties. The film really showed off the 70mm process. They even had a rollercoaster scene, like in THIS IS CINERAMA. Not as good as the "you are there" effect in Cinerama, but pretty close.
