3-D Digital Film Restoration "El Corazón Y la Espada"(1954)
This Main Feature will be included in 3-D Rarities II
The 3-D film will have an English track from 1954 and subtitles.
Per Robert Furmanek:
We can certainly proceed with the sub-par element but this film will only get one chance at restoration.
Take a look at the before/after demo. Wouldn't it be better to work with 4K scans from the original 35mm camera negatives?
That's why we've delayed the project and launched a Kickstarter campaign.
Not been seen in 3-D since the mid-50's and having never been seen in discrete polarized 3D
, it truly is a rarity!
Subtitles will be based on the original 1953 Spanish language track
EL CORAZON has been on the front burner for over a year and it's literally taken that long to locate and negotiate for access to the camera negatives in Mexico.
Once again, letters and inquiries can take months for a reply. That's why the project has been delayed and why we have just now launched the campaign.
I could have thrown content together and gotten Rarities II out a year ago but it would have been sloppy and a far cry from our usual standards and what I know it can be.
We've set a precedence for excellence on 15 releases on 3-D Blu-ray since 2014 and I don't want to compromise that now.
I hope you ............ will do what you can to help us restore this rare film and present it in the absolute best possible quality.
3-D Rarities II will run close to 150 minutes (the same as volume 1) which includes the feature
and 65 minutes of shorts plus a few image galleries."
