Did You Know?


Chris J. Condon, founder of Century Precision Optics, and director Al Silliman Jr., developed a single-camera 3-D system that was simple and economical to use. In the 1950s, 3-D films had been shot with two cameras, and showing a 3-D film in a theater required two projectors, which often went out of sync. The new single-camera system put the two images side-by-side in a normal 35mm film frame, allowing use of a very portable camera. Condon's camera and technology, manufactured by Stereovision International Co., were eventually used to shoot many movies like Jaws 3-D (1983) during the 1980s 3D boom. See more »


8 minutes in when the stewardess sits on the passengers armrest to offer him a drink, a microphone can be seen halfway down the frame poking in quite a way on the right hand side for about 40 seconds (when watching this in 3D this is very strange). A short clip of this scene is in the trailer and the microphone is still visible. See more »

I saw this in the theater in its 3D version when it was originally released in 1969. It stunk to high heaven then and it can't be any better now. Scenes of a woman being brutalized in the bedroom and then jumping out a window hardly fit into a movie described as a comedy-drama. Nudity for no other purpose than titillation does not a movie make. The 3D effects were not all that good and did nothing at all to add to the enjoyment of the film. It has been 35 years since I saw this movie and I still think of it as the worst film I have ever viewed in a theater. My companions and I asked for our money back but were refused. Other vignettes within this "movie" included the story of a man who was traumatized by an act of sodomy. Cheery stuff, eh?
