A 60-year-old documentary is heading to the giant curved screen to raise money for the Admiral Nurse campaign.
Cinematographer Mike Edgecombe will show Russian Adventure through his Smilebox® Omniscope digital system on Saturday (July 1) in Sidmouth Methodist Church.
The documentary was filmed on three-panel Soviet Kinopanorama cameras during the 1950s. Harold J Dennis Productions released the film for the Cinerama format.
The film is introduced and narrated by musician and actor Bing Crosby and captures images from across the then Soviet Union’s 10 time zones.
Mike said: “It became the travelogue tour de force in the United States, which saw this film as a thaw in Cold War relations.
