A short film demonstrating the new 70mm widescreen Todd-AO system. After a prologue that shows all that the eye can see through the Todd-AO wide angle lens, we take a ride in a roller-coaster, fly over the canyons of the Grand Teton Mountains, ski in Sun Valley, and follow a motorcycle chase through the San Francisco.

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.
