I saw this on the Konvas forum and thought it was interesting. Anyone know anything about this system
ans why it was never pursued as a mainstream cinema format and also are there any other similar stories for large scale failed cinema formats?
Stumbled across this film.  Ordered the blu-ray.  Apparently the only film 
shot with the "Cinemiracle" three camera system.  The whole thing 
fascinates me.  Was wondering if anyone in the group could elaborate on 
the process.  I read that Jack Warner wanted to use this for other 
productions, but they fell through.
 
Was also curious about something with this process.  The wikipedia page 
says: The three Eastman Kodak 27 millimeter lenses were electronically 
controlled-and shifted their optical centers depending on the focus.  
Seems like a very good start for a superior 3D capture and projection.

You can read about Cinemiracle here:

Quality-wise, it was basically a variation of Cinerama, three 6-perf 35mm frames side-by-side.
