Photo 22 Aug 1,178 notes Watching Bwana Devil in 3D at the Paramount Theater, Hollywood, 1952,  JR Eyerman
JR Eyerman famously captured this photo of a formally-attired audience sporting 3D glasses during the opening night screening of the movie -Bwana Devil- (the first full length colour 3D motion picture) at Paramount Theatre, Hollywood. The film is set in British East Africa during the early 20th century. It is based on the true story of the Tsavo maneaters, a pair of lions which were responsible for the deaths of a number of construction workers on the Kenya-Uganda Railway, from March to December 1898. Although panned by the critics, the movie started a temporary 3D boom in the US film industry from 1952 to 1954. The advance of television halved the movie attendance from 90 million in 1948 to 46 million in 1951 and the movie studios tried desperately to lure the audience back into the theatres with many innovative techniques, among which were National Vision, Cinerama and other unsuccessful 3D ventures.

Photo 29 Mar 1 note Dylan Kicking A Tire,  1963,  Jim Marshall
"What did Churchill say about Russia? A riddle wrapped in a mystery  inside an enigma? Well, Dylan is like that. This particular photo was  taken one Sunday morning when Bobby, his girlfriend Suze Rotolo, Dave  Van Ronk, and Terri Van Ronk were all going to breakfast in New York.  Just two frames were shot - no big deal - but I feel it shows Bob was  still a kid in 1963. Contrary to popular belief, this shot did not  inspire "Like a Rolling Stone." No one really knows where he was coming  from, but he’s one of the most brilliant songwriters of our time." - Jim  Marshall
