Ups and Downs of the Rollercoaster, Part 2 — 3 Comments

  1. Dorian, the whole Cinerama story has material for six or seven novels. I won't even have time to get into some of the adventures on the location-shooting end; crew member Jim Morrison said there was more human drama behind the scenes than ever appeared on the screen. Same goes for the business end, which is my focus.

  2. Jim, your Cinerama series gets better and better! Incidentally, I know who Lowell Thomas, partly from seeing some of his travelogue shorts on TCM, and partly because my parents knew who Mike Todd was from the gossip magazines some of my family members liked to read! 🙂 Looking forward to diving into Part 3!

  3. This is such a great series – am really learning a lot about Cinerama & the folks behind it. Thanks so much for all the work you've put into this. The next time I'm watching a Cinerama movie with family & friends I can share some of this info. (And they all love it when I do that, don't you know.)
