Title: "i made a movie. it stunk." Actually, from the review he reads, the movie was well made; the story stunk (Pacing problems.)

Reminds me of this old article from The Bad Movie Report, about the authors experiences writing & working on a Direct-to-Video feature in the 80's: http://www.stomptokyo.com/badmoviereport/making.html

A 50's theater owner was impressed by This is CineRama, but CineRama was too expensive, so he made his own version:

Apparently, he hadn't heard of the Fleischer Brother's cartoon tracing method.

Here's more info from the Missouri Historical Society: https://shsmo.org/manuscripts/rolla/r1499.pdf

And From Widescreen Museum: http://www.widescreenmuseum.com/widescr ... carney.htm He calls it "The Smith-Carney System."

Here's the patent: https://patents.google.com/patent/US3144806A/en
