  • The first movie to be shot on 70mm film. The only movie filmed in the process Grandeur, which was similar to the later Todd-AO. Only a small number of theaters were equipped with Grandeur projectors, so an alternate version was simultaneously filmed in 35mm to play in all other theaters. The movie's meager profits did not justify the production of any more films in Grandeur.
