In 2011, Cinerama Inc. presented this motion picture digitally re-mastered, recombined and Smileboxed, so as to simulate the deeply, curved screen view theatricality of this original, Cinemiracle process three-panel film, in Hamburg, Germany. The digital version added opening and closing theater curtains before and after each act of the roadshow picture. Additionally, its track was remixed, and its original 26 fps. running length was timed down to 24 fps.. See more »
I recall having seen this movie in Dortmund/Germany in a big cinema which seemed to have been specially prepared for the occasion. It must have been in 1959 or 1960. I really felt "seasick" at certain passages of this movie, the impact of the stereo pictures and the sound was tremendous for me. It is not just this particular memory which makes this very movie dear to me (even though I never saw it again). This very movie is the reason for my introduction to, and consequently, love for, classical music. Grieg's piano concerto, practised by one of the cadets all the way from Oslo to America for a public performance there (under Arthur Fiedler - I recall his white dinner jacket when conducting) opened up this musical sphere to me forever. Up to this day this music and the Norwegian landscapes shown in the movie are closely connected in my mind. All this a "key event".
