Manhattan’s Film Forum flim-flammed in claiming that their just concluded projection of Alfred Hitchcock’s Dial M for Murder in the original double-system NaturalVision form (i.e., two projec- tors synchronized to give maximum brightness, color and depth) would look better than “an inferior single- projector process” that was used in the early 1980s. Hell, I saw Dial M projected at the Eighth Street Playhouse in ’81 or thereabouts, and it looked a little bit better then than it did at the Film Forum on New Year’s Eve. All during last night’s showing two thoughts kept repeating: (a) the 3-D is cool but the colors are murky and brownish, and (b) the Warner Home Video DVD flat version looks much better, 3-D or no 3-D.
