 Additional Information by laserking (42)   09/03/2012 

Publisher is listed as 3D Video, a subsidiary of Spatial Technologies Incorporated, Woodland Hills, CA. The disc was manufactured at Optical Disc Corporation, Santa Fe Springs, CA. It includes a compilation of scenes from the John Wayne film "Hondo" (1953) Internet Movie Database LaserDisc Database, filmed in the Natural Vision 3D process developed by the 3D Video/Spatial Technologies company. It begins with a chapter explaining how to adjust your television set for optimal effect in viewing the 3D sequences on the disc. Two pairs of 3D glasses are included, one featuring John Wayne's picture, and the other a Native American Indian.

The front of the jacket states, "This is it! The world's first genuine 3D program for home television. See John Wayne walk off the TV screen into your living room. See Indian battles so realistic you'll be ducking arrows!" The back of the jacket features the following warning: "This disc is the property of 3D Video and is for demonstration only! Must be returned immediately after viewing. Not for sale or duplication."

The seller from whom I obtained my copy of this disc stated that he acquired it from an estate sale at the home of the late Daniel L. Symmes, one of the great modern-day 3D pioneers and historians. Mr. Symmes was the co-founder of 3D Video, and developer of the Natural Vision 3D process for broadcast television that is demonstrated on the disc.
