In case the citizens of Ocala FL had forgotten what John Wayne’s Academy Award looked like before they headed to the Springs Theater to see CHISUM…

It is possible that Oscar statue was for the theater, not the star. The Ultravision projection process was awarded a technical achievement Academy Award and most if not all of the ABC theaters noted this with a plaque mounted on the outside near the entrance doors. When it was properly adjusted, the Ultravision process greatly enhanced the quality of the picture. 35MM used the entire height of the screen for flat, and the scopes looked magnificent on the big curve. The single 70MM screening I was fortunate enough to see was the finest looking film presentation I have ever seen.
