Three Dimension Motion Pictures Produced by Means of the Teleview -- January 20, 2023

Motion Picture News, 18-November-1922

Way back when in October, before I took a break, I said I would post some more information about Harry K Fairall's 3-D movie system, which was the first successful system to show 3-D or stereoscopic movies. His only film, "The Power of Love," is probably lost. This article shows his viewing system, the Teleview. Two synchronized projectors alternated showing frames from each side. The Teleview was attached to viewers' seat. It included a rotating disc synchronized to the projectors, which showed each eye the alternating frames. The system was not all that successful, although the guy in the image looks happy.

While we are on the subject of technology, The Color Cinema Company announced that it would produce short comedies in color. The first would be called "Making Hubby Like It." I can't find anything about the company or a movie by that title.
