Customer Reviews

The technical quality of the 3D presentation was great.
Paul Scott
As for the film itself, it is reviewed in depth many other places, so I will just say that I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the story.
J. Paraskevas
Even given the simplicity of the storytelling in DRAGONFLY SQUADRON, the brilliance of the filming itself draws you right in.

Having undertaken the restoration, I don't feel it's my place to submit a review of this lost 3-D film.

However, if you would like to read about the production history and how the restoration was done, I think you might enjoy this article on our website. http://www.3dfilmarchive.com/home/dragonfly-squadron

Thank you very much for your interest and we hope that you enjoy the film!

We are living in very good times when we can watch classic 1950s 3D films in our living rooms. They've done an excellent job restoring the original 3D image. It's not the throw-things-at-the-audience kind of 3D, but more in the style of the 3D version of Hitchcock's "Dial M For Murder"...with the screen compositions having remarkable depth and really drawing you into the drama. The effect is sort of breathtaking, even in an obscure (but enjoyable) Monogram "B" movie like this. The B&W image is very nice, but not "billion dollar restoration" kind of thing...looks more like an actual film screening, which frankly just adds to its vintage charm (I am not a fan of over-digitized, grain-free classic movies...but that's a rant for another website).

Highly recommend. Check out also Twilight Time's "Man In the Dark", another 50's 3D rarity thats now on Blu-ray.

Dragonfly Squadron was my introduction to the P-51 Mustang. It has been my favorite aircraft of all time since then. I saw this movie when I was still too young to know why we were in Korea. Though this movie will never win any coveted awards, it was the predecessor to the later "Battle Hymn" with Rock Hudson(Also with P-51s). The plot deals with the early instruction of the ROK Air Force so it could operated using the WW II vintage P-51. In real life, one of the overall US Air Force missions (In Korea) to train these Korean pilots (Known as Bout One) was headed by then Major Dean Hess, who is Dragonfly Squadron's tech advisor and main character in the later Battle Hymn. It was nice to see early actors (John Hodiak and Chuck Connors), but the real star was the P-51 Mustang. There could have been more aerial sequenes. The love angle was a bit over emphasized. But the attempt was sincere. I'm happy I got this movie for my personal rememberances.The VHS worked fine and I got my money's worth.
Thank you
H.V.

This is a excellent 3d film , that was made in 1954. This blu ray is stunning to look at. And when You compare the way 3d looks to flat standard film , it amazes me that more people are not 3d fanatics. 3d looks clearer and sharp than 2d every time! This film in that regard is outstanding with the 3d used for depth mainly. Which is fine. I wish they had more money to restore the film even better as you do get speckles and such in many scenes. But it's not distracting at all. they are so minor, other scenes have a few defects but nothing that hurts the viewing. , but it's still very watchable. And I applaud the effort that was taken here to give us this super rare movie on 3d blu ray! I wish they could get every vintage 3d film out! They did a excellent job on 'inferno' as well, That one looks even better than this one! Bob f supervised the transfer. Of course we didn't get that over here, but if you have a all region 3d blu ray player which can be had on amazon.com for a good price you can also watch that one. and many other 3d titles we never get in the states. The movie itself is a very low budget affair. With stock footage used for airplanes attacking the ground. they use real tanks in this one though. The film is a very average type of war movie , john hodiak does a good job as the lead actor here. The story is mainly about him and his love interest and his view of the conflict ,more than about the actual squadron fighting. Still it's got action as they fight to escape the north Koreans in the early dark days of the Korean war. the north Koreans slaughtered any American they could get after all. SO on that level , it's not a great war film , it's low budget though. So you get what you get!. 3d films should want this one in their collection for sure.Read more ›

Just got back from the midnight 3D presentation of Dragonfly Squadron projected on my 120" screen courtesy of my ghost free, DLP Sharp 30K.

This was the first time I had ever seen the film, and (minor print damage/speckling aside) I don't think that I would have seen a better quality, correctly synchronized 3D print in a theater had I been alive when it was first released.

I was delighted that the cast includes lots of the wonderful 50's character actors. Many of them having appeared in some of my favorite movies and TV shows of the era such as North By Northwest, Perry Mason, The Rifleman, and others too numerous to mention.

Another classic fifties 3D film has been saved from oblivion thanks to the hard work of 3D consultant and restoration expert Mr. Bob Furmanek! Please show the studios that you support his efforts and purchase this Blu-ray.

Keep 'em coming!

Here's a Review by Josh Steinberg Hope you dont mind Josh,Just trying to get the good word out.

My copy came earlier in the week, and I had a chance to view it on Wednesday night. I was really impressed with the disc. Hats off to Bob Furmanek and everyone else at the 3D Film Archive who worked on this.

Watched on an Epson 5030 projector, the presentation was fantastic. The popout on the main titles seemed to be at the limit of what the projector could do, but didn't present a problem, and that was about the only moment I can remember where the 3D appeared anything less than perfect (and I'd bet that's more of a display issue than a disc authoring issue). The use of depth throughout the film wasn't gimmicky, but did help in making everything seem a little more realistic. The movie itself was a solid "b" movie - in general I'm not a huge watcher of war movies, so I was probably not destined to be this movie's biggest fan in the first place, but I enjoyed it more than I expected. The first half really flew by for me (pun not intended), I was surprised when the "intermission" card came up as I had lost track of time. (I have to admit that I occasionally got so caught up in admiring the technical quality of the presentation that a couple of times I forgot to pay attention to what the actors were saying!)

The technical quality of the 3D presentation was great. The alignment did seem flawless, I didn't notice any ghosting or anything else that would take a viewer out of the movie when watching it. There was the occasional scratch or speck of dirt during the film, but absolutely nothing that would take away from the movie.
