3-D Summer at MoMA
MoMA reaffirms its faith in stereoscopic motion pictures as a medium with extended runs for two restored Hollywood movies from the first 3-D craze: Hondo (1954), a muscular western directed by John Farrow and starring John Wayne, and the MGM musical version of Cole Porter’s Kiss Me Kate (1953), directed by the exuberant vulgarian George Sidney. A third program of 3-D rarities includes the earliest surviving stereoscopic film, Thru the Trees: Washington, D.C. (1922); a 1940 promotional films for Chrysler and the Pennsylvania Railroad; and the 1953 stop-motion animation The Adventures of Sam Space.
