3-D Filmography
Feature Films: 1922 - Present
Compiled by 3-D Revolution's Gary Palmer



This filmography attempts to list every feature-length (50 minutes or longer) 3-D movie screened to paying customers in a commercial venue (theatrical or video) since 1922, the year in which the first long-form stereoscopic subject was produced for theatrical exhibition (THE POWER OF LOVE). TV and direct-to-video programs are also included, but restrictions apply within these categories: For example, direct-to-video (DTV) items are only included if they’re comprised of a scripted (dramatic) narrative and have been made available through regular retail outlets, which excludes those films - invariably amateur in nature - offered for sale via one or two specialist websites. These ‘rules’ may be broken if an item is felt to have made a significant contribution to the development of 3-D cinema, but such decisions are entirely subjective and taken on a case-by-case basis.

Short films produced since 1893 are listed in their own separate section:

Titles are configured in alphabetical order on a letter-by-letter basis (ie. IT CAME FROM OUTER SPACE before I, THE JURY, etc.). The rest of the layout is fairly self-explanatory:

Original title. Titles in italics represent foreign language films whose original titles are unknown. An asterisk (*) denotes an entry which is believed to be incomplete, requiring further investigation.

• Alternative English-language titles, where relevant. These are cross-referenced alphabetically throughout the filmography.

• Country of origin - Copyright year - Running time (in minutes) - Colour (col), black and white (bw) or sepia notation - 70mm or scope notation (see abbreviations below) - Film gauge.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Each entry indicates which gauge was employed during principal photography to capture the separate left-right images, and this appears directly after the 'colour (col)', 'black and white (bw)' and/or 'scope' notation. Abbreviations as follows:

16mm = Separate left-right images captured on 16mm film.
1070 = Separate left-right images captured on 10-perf 65mm film (70mm release prints).
1570 = Separate left-right images captured on 15-perf 65mm film (70mm release prints).
35mm = Separate left-right images captured on 35mm film.
3070 = Separate left-right images captured on 30-perf 65mm film (70mm release prints)
65mm = Separate left-right images captured on 5-perf 65mm film (70mm release prints)
70mm = Separate left-right images captured on 5-perf 70mm film.
870 = Separate left-right images captured on 8-perf 65mm film (70mm release prints).
CGI = Applies to computer-animated films whereby the separate left-right images are generated within the digital domain.
digital still photography = Puppet animation photographed by a motion-controlled digital camera which captures every frame twice, at slightly different angles to one another. This results in separate left-right elements which are later configured into a three-dimensional release print.
HD = Separate left-right images captured on HD video.
Super-8 = Separate left-right images captured on Super-8 film.
video = Separate left-right images captured on standard-definition video.

Quasi-dimensional 3-D formats (anaglyph, Pulfrich, etc.) are noted within the body of each entry.

Readers are advised that films shot in a specific format - such as dual-35mm - may have been released in a different 3-D format altogether. For example, nearly all 21st century 3-D films are released in a variety of digital formats (Real-D, Dolby 3-D, etc.), though they may have been shot using twin HD cameras, or created via computer animation. Most 3-D films before 1950 were shot in dual-35mm but released theatrically in single-strip anaglyph format, and in many cases, the original dual-35mm elements may no longer exist.


• Director [D:].

Trade name of 3-D process (where one exists).

• Sound format. Only multi-channel formats prior to the introduction of Dolby Stereo are included.

• Primary aspect ratio.

• Notes and/or plot synopses are provided in brackets at the end of each entry.

Where two production dates are given (ie. '1991 / 2010'), this indicates that the film was originally released in 2-D format before being reissued in 'dimensionalized' 3-D. The earlier date reflects the original 2-D version, while the latter date indicates the 3-D re-release.

The ‘Stereokino’ process used on various Russian films in this list is rendered as ‘Stereofilm’ in some English-language sources. Both terms are accurate in their own way, though I’ve opted for the one which more closely resembles the original Russian configuration.

Also, various 3-D processes credited as ‘Stereovision’ were used throughout the 1950’s and 60’s, though these shouldn’t be confused with the single-strip StereoVision process (note the capital ‘V’) established by Chris J. Condon in 1969.

* = Entry incomplete
bw = Black and white
col = Colour
D-Cinema = Digital Cinema
DTS = Digital Theater Systems (digital sound format)
fps = Frames per second
(LF) = Large Format (anything larger than 5-perf 70mm)
SAFE 3-D = Smart Anaglyphic Fatigue Eliminator 3-D
scope = Films with an aspect ratio 2.00:1 or wider (usually 2.35:1 or 2.39:1)
SDDS = Sony Dynamic Digital Sound
SDDS-8 = 8-channel Sony Dynamic Digital Sound
Sonics-DDP = Sonics Digital Disc Playback (sound format)
(SV) = Special venue item
(TV) = Made for TV
(V) = Produced for (and released directly to) home video
VHD = Video High Density (disc-based video format)

Adult films - whether hard- or softcore - have now been relegated to a separate section for reasons which are explained in that section. However, X-rated items which were released theatrically are still included in the main list below. This has led to a small amount of cross-over from one list to another, but not so much as to make a separate listing for 'Adults Only' material less necessary.

UPDATED ENTRIES (July 2012):

There are many small changes scattered throughout this update, not all of which needed to be listed here. However, we've made a note of some of the major changes, for the record:

1920: BITWA WARSZAWSKA: Previously listed as Bitwa Warszawska 1920. Added running time. Entry now complete.
ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER: Added running time and details of 3-D process. Entry now complete.
THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN: THE SECRET OF THE UNICORN: Previously listed as The Adventures of Tintin. Added running time and plot details. Entry now complete.
ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS: CHIPWRECKED is no longer a 3-D film.
THE AVENGERS: Added alternate title Avengers Assemble.
THE BLOODY RAGE OF BIGFOOT: Now dropped from the list, since it appears to have been shot in 'regular' 2-D.
LOS ELEMENTALES: This has now been relegated to the 'In Production' section, since it won't be ready (if at all) until 2013.
GINGERDEAD MAN 3: SATURDAY NIGHT CLEAVER: Dropped from the list, since it appears to have been shot in 2-D only, despite being announced as a 3-D feature.
HARRY POTTER AND THE DEATHLY HALLOWS PART 1: 3-D version released on home video.
KRONJUVELERNA: Dropped from the list, since it now appears this was shot and released in 2-D only.
MIRROR, MIRROR: Previously listed as Snow White. Added aspect ratio.
NECO-BAN: CATS IN YOUR LIFE: Previously listed as Nekoban 3-D: Tobidasu Nyanko. Plot details updated.
NOCHE DE PAZ!: Relegated to the 'In Production' section, since this seems to have been 'In Production' longer than I've been alive (and that's a l-o-o-o-o-o-n-g time!!).
THE PIRATES! IN AN ADVENTURE WITH SCIENTISTS: Previously listed as The Pirates! Band of Misfits, which now becomes an AKA.
THE PRODIGIES: LA NUIT DES ENFANTS ROIS: Previously listed under its English-language alternative title The Prodigies.
SPY KIDS: ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD: Changed the 3-D tech details (unusually, it was converted to 3-D in post, rather than shot natively).
VIY: Previously listed as Viy: The Return. Copyright date changed from 2010 to 2012.
XP3D: Previously listed under its English-language alternative Paranormal Xperience. Added 3-D format, aspect ratio and running time. Copyright date changed from 2012 to 2011. Entry now complete.

However, the movie appears to have been released theatrically in 2-D only, and I could find no other evidence to confirm - or deny - Sammons’ claim. In a brief interview with the cinematographer Karl Struss, published online at <http://www.3dgear.com/scsc/karl_struss.htm>, Struss discusses the other 3-D films he photographed in Italy during this period (Cavalleria Rusticana, Il Più Comico Spettacolo del Mondo and Un Turco Napoletano, all qv) but makes no mention of a dimensional process in relation to Due Notti con Cleopatra.

[In his 1992 book ‘The World of 3-D Movies’, author Eddie Sammons raises the very real possibility that this film and ‘Bella su Misura’ (an extremely obscure title, listed in many 3-D filmographies over the years) are actually one and the same. Judging by its absence from every published and online reference guide, ‘Bella su Misura’ seems to be a non-existent film, announced for 3-D production at the same time as Marc Allégret’s ill-fated Femmina, also announced as a 3-D movie and featuring a plot which fits the various translations offered for ‘Bella su Misura’, such as ‘Beauty to Measure’ and ‘Tailor-Made Beauties’. It’s highly likely Femmina is the final release title of the film announced as ‘Bella su Misura’. However, it’s not certain how much - if any - of Allégret’s film was photographed in Tridimensionale Christiani 3-D, as planned. Noted for the record.

[X-rated take-off of Casablanca (1942), released in varying degrees of explicitness. Several dramas reach a climax (ahem!) at an outrageous nightclub owned by impotent hunk Mike Ranger whose ex-girlfriend (Serena) turns up unexpectedly, trailing trouble in her wake. Co-starring Swedish sexpot Uschi Digart, who appeared in quite a few dimensional Adult films of the period (Prison Girls, The Chamber-Mades, etc.). The 3-D process was promoted in various advertising materials as ‘Widevision 3-D’. In some prints, the director is credited under the pseudonym ‘Giorgio Ferrari’. The original title is often given as ‘The Disco Dolls in Hot Skin’, but this seems to have arisen from wording on several ad-mats, in which the phrase ‘The Disco Dolls in’ was given equal prominence to the actual title Hot Skin]

Hoping to capitalize on the success of Bwana Devil (qv) the previous year, House was beaten into theaters by crime drama Man in the Dark (1953, qv), though its combination of period gloss, spooky visuals and dimensional cinematography paid dividends at the box-office and kicked the 1950’s 3-D boom into high gear.

Some material was shot in 3-D but excluded from the final print, apparently because it proved too distracting (!), and has never been reinstated. The film was restored in 1980 by movie historian Kevin Brownlow, though Ray Zone reports in his book ‘3-D Filmmakers: Conversations With Creators of Stereoscopic Motion Pictures’ (2005) that Brownlow’s trawl through existing footage yielded no trace of the 3-D segment.

D: Erik Hill
1.37:1
[Thanks to posters Josh Kitching, Garrett L. and Jim Tomkins at the AV Maniacs forum, along with Derek K. at the ATKOL forums, this XXX gay feature has been rescued from decades-long obscurity. Their research - gleaned from contemporary editions of the San Francisco Chronicle, Los Angeles Times and The Advocate, along with info uncovered at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Library - indicates the film played in San Francisco and LA in the summer of 1973 and was advertised as "The World's First Male 3-D" (for once, the ballyhoo was justified!). The San Francisco Chronicle also described it as a "3-D spectacular... with George Payne, star of THE BACK ROW (1972), and Bruce Morgan of LOADSTAR (1972) fame". Information from the AMPAS library confirms the shooting gauge (16mm), and describes the 3-D format as "3 Dimension by Stereo Prism". Co-stars include Ray Jackson, John Traynor (billed on ad-mats as 'John Trainer') and Allen Sarefield. According to a review in a 1973 edition of The Advocate, the film contains four separate scenes, all of a sexual nature, and was designed as a test-run for the 3-D process. However, it seems the movie wasn't successful enough to warrant any further experimentation with this specific 3-D format]

[Daniel Defoe’s classic novel lends itself to cinematic interpretation, especially in 3-D, so it’s no surprise this lavish production - the first feature-length stereoscopic movie in colour - was a huge hit on its home turf in 1946. In fact, the only mystery is why this is the only 3-D version of Defoe’s work to date! Surely ripe for rediscovery here in the west?]

[In 1971, director Donald E. Davidson 'appropriated' several copies of Byron Mabe's 2-D feature She Freak (1967) and shot a new title sequence along with a non sequitur 3-D insert (promoted in some sources as 'MiracleVision' - it was a miracle if viewers could see any depth at all!), and released the jaw-dropping results in deep South cinemas under the title Asylum of the Insane. Basically an exploitation remake of Freaks (1932), Mabe's original movie features Claire Brennen as a greasy-spoon waitress who escapes her humdrum existence by joining a travelling carnival. However, she doesn’t take kindly to the so-called ‘freaks’ and ‘oddities’ who make up its numbers, leading to a grotesque resolution. The 3-D inserts have literally nothing to do with the rest of the movie! Asylum of the Insane is often given as an AKA for another 3-D feature, The Flesh and Blood Show (1972, qv), thereby confusing the two films as a single production in many listings. However, TFABS doesn’t appear to have been screened anywhere under this particular title. See also Monsters Crash the Pajama Party: Spook Show Spectacular]

However, 3-D historian Ray Zone describes an article written by cinematographer Gregg Toland in a 1935 edition of the ‘New York Times’, in which Toland outlines test footage he had shot with Alder’s format (described by Zone as “an autostereoscopic device with spinning mirrors that recorded three different angles of a subject simultaneously on a single strip of 35-mm film”). Zone avers the footage gave an enhanced illusion of depth but couldn’t be described as a ‘true’ stereoscopic process. Toland was the lighting cameraman on These Three, but it’s unclear whether the test footage he shot with Alder’s process was ultimately included in the finished film, or whether it was intended for this production at all]

D: Mario Mattoli
[This movie has been listed in most 3-D filmographies for many years, and cinematographer Karl Struss asserted that he did photograph the film in a dual-35mm format (Richardson 3-D). However, as author Eddie Sammons has pointed out, there is no mention of 3-D on contemporary ad-mats, and no proof it was ever screened in 3-D anywhere! Either Struss confused this film with the bona fide 3-D production Il Più Comico Spettacolo del Mondo (1953, qv), or it was filmed in 3-D and - for whatever reason - released in 2-D only]

USSR - 1963 - 69m - col - 35mm
D: Viktor Eisymont
Stereokino
1.37:1
[Obscure feature, about an adventurer studying the inhabitants of a 'city of animals'. The original Russian title is similar to that given for the 1963 feature Extraordinary Studies (Neobiknovenniy Etyudy), but there is no record of any such film in all the Russian sources I've checked. Given that they were both produced the same year, and given that no other info has ever surfaced on the origins of Extraordinary Studies (not even a director or cast list), then it's a fair assumption that these two films - previously listed as separate items - are actually one and the same. Further, the brief plot synopsis tallies with the concept of an 'extraordinary study' by the central protagonist, which provides further evidence for my assumptions about these 'two' films]

Technical Glossary


NB. The following list provides a slightly fuller description of the methods employed to capture the left-right sterescopic images for the movies listed in this filmography. However, readers should be aware that films shot in a specific format - such as dual-35mm - may be released in a different 3-D format altogether. For example, nearly all 21st century 3-D films are released in a variety of digital formats (Real-D, Dolby 3-D, etc.), though they may have been shot using twin HD cameras, or created via computer animation. Most 3-D films before 1950 were shot in dual-35mm but released theatrically in single-strip anaglyph format, and in many cases, the original dual-35mm elements may no longer exist. That being said, all 3-D films can be reconfigured in a variety of different display methods (35mm, digital, etc.), so long as separate left-right images were captured during principal photography.




Anaglyphic camera attachment
Single-strip format. Left-right images configured directly onto the negative via a specially-designed camera attachment which employs colored filters to separate the elements within each frame. The results are viewed through colored lenses (using appropriate eyewear) which resolves the image into a three-dimensional effect. The film gauge (35mm, 16mm, etc.) is added in parentheses.

CGI Widescreen
Animated material rendered entirely in the digital domain, configured in a 2.39:1 aspect ratio for theatrical release.

Dimensionalized 3-D
Stereoscopic images created from 2-D source material. 2-D footage (live-action and/or CGI) is scanned into a computer and digitally mapped to create corresponding alternate images, slightly offset from the original in the manner of ‘regular’ 3-D cinematography. This results in separate left-right elements which are later configured into a three-dimensional release print, using methods which vary from one movie to another. In some cases, part of the source material may already exist in 3-D form (such as stereographs, or live-action footage shot in a dual-strip process), but these elements are also digitized and configured into the final release print. The phrase ‘dimensionalization’ was first coined by In-Three for its own computer-generated 2-D to 3-D format (see: In-Three Dimensionalization) and has been adopted for the purposes of this filmography.

Dual-16mm
Left-right images captured on separate strips of 16mm film.

Dual-1570
Left-right images captured on separate strips of 15-perf 65mm film.

Dual-35mm
Left-right images captured on separate strips of 35mm film.

Dual-HD Video
Left-right images captured on separate strips of HD video.

Dual-Techniscope
Left-right images captured on separate strips of 2-perf 35mm film, rendering a native 2.39:1 frame.

Dual-video
Left-right images captured on separate strips of standard-def video.

Field sequential 3-D
Video-only format. Left-right images configured within the two fields which make up each separate video frame and transmitted sequentially - 30fps in NTSC and 25fps in PAL - in conjunction with specially designed eyewear. However, each ‘field’ generates only half the image-resolution of standard video frames and is further hampered by the frame-rate restrictions of NTSC/PAL technology.

Frame sequential (35mm)
Left-right images captured on a single strip of film and projected at 48 frames per second, viewed through polarized lenses which resolve the overlapping images into a stereoscopic effect.

HD Digital Widescreen
CinemaScope-style imagery captured by HD cameras. Special technology is employed which alters the shape of the pixels that make up the video image, ‘squeezing’ an ultra-wide shape (2.33:1 or 2.37:1, depending on the camera) into the native 1.78:1 frame. The results are later extracted and printed at 2.39:1 for theatrical exhibition.

HD Widescreen
CinemaScope-style imagery captured by HD cameras. During principal photography, all relevant material is framed at 2.39:1 within the native 1.78:1 HD image. This portion is later extracted and printed at 2.39:1 for theatrical exhibition.

Over-under (35mm)
Left-right images stacked above/below in the space normally occupied by a single 35mm frame. Aspect ratio 2.35:1.

Pulfrich 3-D
Single-strip format in which a 3-D ‘effect’ is created by darkening one of the lenses in specially designed eyewear, resulting in an optical illusion of depth during horizontal camera movement ('Pulfrich effect'). Though it works best in films specifically designed for 3-D, Pulfrich eyewear will generate a similar dimensional effect in virtually *any* movie or TV show whilst the action is moving in an appropriate direction. Shot-on-video material (standard and high definition) tends to be most effective for this quasi-3D process, which barely qualifies as '3-D' at all. Also known as Nuoptix, Lawrence Vision and Spatial Vision.

Side by side (16mm spherical)
Left-right images placed adjacent to one another in the space normally occupied by a single 16mm frame, resulting in images that are tall instead of wide (0.67:1 aspect ratio).

Side by side (35mm anamorphic)
Left-right images placed adjacent to one another in the space normally occupied by a single 35mm frame and subjected to an anamorphic squeeze. This process results in tall oblong-shaped images which are ‘un-squeezed’ during projection, yielding a regular 1.37:1 shape, though the images can be projected at anything up to 1.85:1, depending on how they were composed during production.

Side by side (35mm lenticular projection)
Left-right images placed adjacent to one another in the space normally occupied by a single 35mm frame, resulting in images that are tall instead of wide (0.67:1 aspect ratio). These are projected in lenticular format on a specially-designed transparent screen made up of thousands of wires that reflect the two images in such a way as to create a dimensional effect without the need for 3-D eyewear.

Side by side (35mm vertical)
Left-right images tilted onto their sides in a vertical configuration and placed adjacent to one another in the space normally occupied by a single 35mm frame.

Side by side (63mm spherical)
Left-right images placed adjacent to one another in the space normally occupied by a single 63mm frame. The 1.37:1 frames fit comfortably within the larger format.

Side by side (65mm anamorphic)
Left-right images placed adjacent to one another in the space normally occupied by a single 5-perf 65mm frame and subjected to an anamorphic squeeze, yielding a 2.21:1 aspect ratio. Release prints configured in 5-perf 70mm.

Side by side (65mm spherical)
Left-right images placed adjacent to one another in the space normally occupied by a single 5-perf 65mm frame. The 1.37:1 frames fit comfortably within the larger format. Release print configured in 5-perf 70mm.

Stereoscopic cel animation (35mm)
Animated frames rendered on individual cels and photographed twice, slightly offset from one another in the manner of ‘regular’ 3-D cinematography. This results in separate left-right elements which are later configured into a stereoscopic release print.

Stereoscopic CGI animation
Images rendered within the digital domain in three-dimensional geometric space. Each frame is recorded twice, slightly offset from one another in the manner of ‘regular’ 3-D cinematography. This results in separate left-right images which are configured into a stereoscopic release print.

Stereoscopic puppet animation (digital still photography)
Puppet animation photographed by a motion-controlled digital camera which captures every frame twice, at slightly different angles to one another. This results in separate left-right elements which are later configured into a three-dimensional release print.

* I've listed Hayes' book as one of my references, though readers should be aware that the volume in question is riddled with errors and (mistaken) assumptions which render it only partially useful. I used it primarily as a rough starting-point for my own research into 3-D films, and I would urge others to do the same.
