Editorial Reviews

Cinerama Holiday was the second of the original, 3-panel Cinerama travelogues. Released in 1955, the film crisscrosses the vacations of two adventurous, real-life married couples, with stops in St. Moritz, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Paris.

"Cinerama Holiday" was the 2nd of the original, 3-panel Cinerama travelogues. Released in 1955, the motion picture crisscrosses two hybridized travelogues of the "Cinerama camera accompanied" vacations of two adventurous, real-life, married couples. The couple from America go to Europe and the couple from Switzerland tour the USA. My granddaughters love the rollercoaster in "This is Cinerama" and set their chairs side-by-side close to the big screen TV to watch it. But for them the bobsled ride is the best. They "rode" the bobsled segment 14 times in a row. They would have gone more but the needed to go to dance lessons. Result: two more kids who are hooked on Cinerama and travelogues in general. Dave Strohmaier (who has re-mastered these films)has done a fabulous job in keeping Cinerama alive and well. Thanks Dave for a job well done!

Great picture quality. Last year my son gave me "This Is Cinerama" and this year, again for my birthday, he gave me another Cinerama restoration, " Cinerama Holiday".
What a fantastic improvement in picture quality. It gets even better about 1 hour into the film too. I did not get to see Cinerama Holiday at the Tennessee Theater in downtown Nashville back in the 50s, so this was a treat. Also, I enjoyed this film a bit more than than the first. It was much more interesting to me. So my hat is off to everyone at Flicker Alley for the fantastic restoration. I love Smilebox too. Just like when I sat 5th row center in the theater, I can see a bit of the stage just below the curved screen.

I was to young to see CINERAMA HOLIDAY on its original release and wished one day I could. My wish was granted with this fantastic release from Flicker Alley. The transfer is incredible! It is wonderful to see the world as it was back in 1955. This is a great piece of history and should be in everyone's collection.

I bought this for my dad as a Christmas present and we all watched as this wonderful time capsule of travel, both domestic and foreign, unfolded. While it is somewhat uneven with too much time devoted to some subjects and not enough for others (NY especially!) it was a fascinating look at the world as it existed then. The conceit of the two traveling couples is ridiculous and they add nothing to what is essentially a medley of travelogue footage. But it survives on the merit of the travel footage alone. The extras are interesting in a "watch it once" kind of way...fun to see the two women as they are now.

Never say never would be the accurate way to describe this release. Cinerama Holiday was the second Cinerama production, and the first I ever saw in a theater, so it is fitting that it be released to DVD. The ads for Cinerama in the 1950's, when both Cinerama and the teevee were in their infancies, said Cinerama could never be shown on the teevee. Now it is presented in full stereophonic sound and very painstakingly restored as well. We see it on the DVD almost as it was presented back in the 1950's. Of course, it is awfully hard to present a curved screen onto a flat one, so they have done the next best thing, they have put the camera in the back of the theater auditorium and projected it that way. It almost works. I should think it would truly work on the new curved screen teevees which are coming out now. It will be awhile before I will be able to see it that way, though. I don't have $3,000 to shell out for one just now. There are segments in this movie which are better than others. I enjoyed the trip across America and the Swiss Alps, but I believe the Paris segment was just a tad long. I especailly enjoyed the New Orleans segment, but it didn't show Mardi Gras, which would have been tremendous in Cinerama. I also especially enjoyed the New England fair. Still, Cinerama Holiday is a good history lesson showing the United States as it once was, and Paris, too. In fact, its fun to see all the old films again, even though the projection is not quite there.

Very beautiful and flawless Blu-Ray print in the amazing SmileBox format. Some very exciting scenes and magnificent scenery. An absolute must for anyone with a large flat screen TV. This is the original roadshow uncut print.

This is the second of the Cinerama travelogues. As with Windjammer, which was also done by Louis DeRochement, there was a more coherent plot, than in the other films.
photography was good and the supplements were actually interesting. This is the one film I never got to see during roadshow so it was a treat to finally it. Goood musical score. I enjoyed this and Windjammer more than any of the other presentations.
one caution however, it needs to be projected on a BIG screen to get the effect. Even a 100" diagonal may be too small.

Flicker Alley did a fantastic job with Cinarama Holiday. We watched this blu-ray during the Christmas Season with a room full of guests through an HD protector on a 110" screen. Everybody sat real close. Next best thing to reliving the Cinarama experience at home. Guests raved about the experience, and the quality of the intensive restoration of this magnificent travelogue. It's like you're really there....but, there back in 1955! A highlight to the season and an experience my guests will remember forever. What an amazing flashback experience through the advancement of technology.

Excellent addition and a "MUST HAVE" for any blu-ray aficionado's collection.

BEWARE: Make sure you get the FLICKER ALLEY blu-ray release, and not the hack job atrocity distributed by Alpha Video. Flicker Alley spend years and years, and big bucks (with loving care) to restore this historical gem of a film.
