EVP and GM of Warner Home video, Jeff Baker sayis, “This is not a conversion from 2D to 3D. The Warner library has the largest number of classic 3D titles (15) of any studio, and over the years we’ve been looking to release them. But not until now has the technology been perfected to the point we can do that.”
The movie had originally filmed using the two-eye polarization process that is used for 3D today. But the movie had not been screened in that format due to the high cost of projection process that would have been involved.
The next in line would probably be the ‘House of Wax’ by Vincent Price.
Cost of the Blu-ray disc would be $35.99 and it would include some information on how the movie was made in 3D. For restoration a 4K scan process has been used for this Grace Kelly starrer about a man plotting to frame his wife for a murder to revenge for her adulterous acts.
One can also get a re-mastered version of ‘Strangers on Train’ for $19.98 which also includes a commentary on the history of films.
