HONDO in 3-D - Research materials needed

posted by BobFurmanek on October 1, 2007 at 10:40 am

We are documenting the 3-D distribution of HONDO, starring John Wayne and released by Warner Bros. It premiered in Houston on 11/24/53 and El Paso on 11/25/53. It then had pre-release Thanksgiving week bookings in nearly 30 major cities in 3-D, mostly on the East Coast.

The film went into wide release in late December. Throughout January and February of 1954, HONDO played extensively throughout the country in 3-D. We have already secured copies of many ads, but we are looking for photographs of marquees or theater displays.

If anybody has material they would be willing to share, please let me know. Thank you very much!
