About

THANK YOU FOR HELPING US REACH OUR MAIN FUNDING GOAL! 

El Corazón y la Espada will definitely be fully restored for 3-D Rarities, Vol. II. 

YOU GOT US TO STRETCH GOAL #1 AND UNLOCKED A SPECIAL ADD-ON ITEM!

Now every Kickstarter backer's blu-ray will come with a special Limited Edition Lenticular, just for the supporters of this campaign. RETROVIEWERS ARE SOLD OUT!

RETROVIEWERS ARE SOLD OUT AND WE HAVE A NEW STRETCH GOAL TO SAVE A RARE 3-D SHORT FILM

Help Us Restore The First Mexican Movie Filmed in 3-D

In 2016, nonprofit 3-D SPACE and the 3-D Film Archive, with the help of over 300 Kickstarter backers, successfully rescued and restored the 3-D feature film September Storm. Now we're teaming up again, and we need your help to save another "lost" 3-D movie!

In preparing materials for the upcoming 3-D Rarities Vol. II Blu-Ray release from Flicker Alley, the 3-D Film Archive has been given the opportunity to include the rarely seen 1954 feature motion picture El Corazón y la Espada, historically notable as the first 3-D movie produced in Mexico. Starring Cesar Romero (The Thin Man; Captain From Castile; Batman) and Katy Jurado (High Noon; Broken Lance), the film is a period costume drama full of action, intrigue, and romance.

El Corazón y la Espada was filmed in 1953, during the peak of the 3-D movie craze, and was released in the red/blue anaglyph format in Mexican theaters in January of 1954, followed by a limited 3-D release to Spanish language theaters in the U.S. beginning in February, 1954. Two years later, a 2-D English language version was released in the U.S., retitled Sword Of Granada. The Spanish 3-D version was last screened in 1955 and the flat English version only aired sporadically on TV. After 1975, it disappeared entirely.

The original 3-D left and right camera negatives have been located, but are in rough shape and have been deteriorating, so will need a lot of work to make the film watchable again. With your support, the 3-D Film Archive will be able to:

  • Produce new 4K scans from the original camera negatives
  • Perform frame-by-frame restoration, stereoscopic alignment, dirt removal, and scratch cleanup
  • License the English audio track from Sword Of Granada, and create English sub-titles
  • Include the entire feature film (for the first time ever in discreet left and right 3-D) with commentary on the 3-D Rarities Vol. II Blu-Ray

Backers who order the Blu-ray through this campaign will receive the complete 3-D Rarities Vol. II including this feature film, all of the additional 3-D shorts, still images, and other bonus extras that will be a part of this Blu-ray collection.

Please make a pledge to save this historic movie.


Ayúdanos a restaurar la primera película mexicana filmada en 3-D

En 2016, 3-D SPACE sin fines de lucro y el archivo de películas en 3D, con la ayuda de más de 300 patrocinadores de Kickstarter, rescataron y restauraron con éxito la película en 3-D September Storm . ¡Ahora nos estamos uniendo de nuevo, y necesitamos tu ayuda para salvar otra película 3-D "perdida"!

En la preparación de materiales para el próximo lanzamiento en Blu-ray de 3-D Rarities Vol. II de Flicker Alley, el archivo de películas en 3D ha tenido la oportunidad de incluir la película cinematográfica El Corazón y la Espada , apenas vista en 1954, históricamente notable como la primera película en 3D producida en México. Protagonizada por César Romero (The Thin Man; Captain From Castile; Batman) y Katy Jurado (High Noon; Broken Lance), la película es un drama de época lleno de acción, intriga y romance.

El Corazón y la Espada se filmó en 1953, durante el apogeo de la moda de las películas en 3-D, y se lanzó en formato anaglifo rojo-azul en salas mexicanas en enero de 1954, seguido de un lanzamiento limitado n 3-D en español en salas de los EE.UU. a partir de febrero de 1954. Dos años después, se lanzó en los EE. UU. una versión en inglés en dos dimensiones, retitulada Sword Of Granada . La versión tridimensional en español se proyectó por última vez en 1955 y la versión plana en inglés solo se emitió esporádicamente en la televisión. Después de 1975, desapareció por completo.

Se han localizado los negativos originales de la cámara 3-D izquierda y derecha, pero están en mal estado y se están deteriorando, por lo que se necesitará mucho trabajo para que la película se pueda ver nuevamente. Con su apoyo, el archivo de películas en 3D podrá:

  • Produce nuevos escaneos 4K a partir de los negativos de la cámara original
  • realizar restauración cuadro por cuadro, alineación estereoscópica, eliminación de suciedad y limpieza de rayones
  • Obtener la licencia de la pista de audio en inglés de Sword Of Granada y crear subtítulos en inglés
  • Incluir el largometraje completo (por primera vez en discreta izquierda y derecha en 3D) con comentarios en el Blu-ray de 3-D Rarities Vol. II de Flicker Alley

Los patrocinadores que soliciten el Blu-ray a través de esta campaña recibirán el 3-D Rarities Vol. II completo, incluyendo esta película, todos los cortos adicionales en 3D, imágenes fijas y otros extras adicionales que formarán parte de esta colección en Blu-ray.

Por favor realiza una contribución para salvar esta película histórica.
