    Interesting to read the "return to basics" plan for THE AVENGERS, which of course was short-lived and rapidly became the "return to Fennell and Clemens" plan. Diana Rigg is mentioned as though she is still to be the female lead.

    Did anyone ever see Dimension 150 working? I'd be curious to hear how it looked.

    Marty Hart, on his stupendous Widescreen Museum site has all the technical stuff on this process.

    Only two films surfaced using the process. I have the 40 by 30 poster of The Bible and a colour A4 insert to Patton

    http://www.widescreenmuseum.com/widescreen/wingto13.htm

    (and subsequent pages)

    By the time of Stephen Pickard's journal (July 15, 1967-note 46 years to the day almost) the Odeon
    Marble Arch which was the hand-picked venue for D150 was showing The Professionals followed by The Long Duel and had only opened as the 'new' Marble Arch Odeon in February of that year. The Bible had been released at the Coliseum Cinerama some 9 months earlier and had closed there a week before the above date publication of Kinematograph Weekly to by then dwindling audiences.

    Patton was released at the Casino Cinerama on 7 May 1970 and ran there for five months continuously. Can't trace a showing of Patton at Marble Arch ever. Hello Dolly was its incumbent showing all through 1970 (from 24 December 1969) until August 27 of that year followed by Cromwell for a 9-month run there. Patton would have been a year old by then.

    This was a fascinating read about the Odeon, Marble Arch, and its wide screen. Thanks as always for sharing this and all the other gems.

    I still have my copies of Halliwell (that's "Film Guide" as well as "Filmgoers Companion") of forty years ago now and they are as well used now as always. Irreplaceable!
