It acts as a sequel to Deadly Genesis which introduced the new character Vulcan and this arc really showed how powerful and how much of a threat he is and drilled it in that he is a force to be reckoned with. The end of this story also saw Professor X getting his powers back after he and Nightcrawler lead a team during this arc. Entertaining stuff. Issue 1 is still the biggest selling single issue of a comic ever so the promotion worked and it explains the constant re-branding that goes on now as they are trying to replicate that success much to the detriment of the very annoyed customer.
The original brood saga is usually considered the definitive arc involving the parasitic alien beasties but I have always been more partial to Broodfall. A story that had been slowly burning through the pages of the excellent 3rd volume of X-Force but the main event was a crossover surprise featuring most of the x-titles. The amount of mutants resurrected is insane and there are so many nods to deceased characters that will have you checking every inch of each page to see who is wandering around as a zombie. Fabien Ncenzia was always a writer who got the character and wrote him very well…..
The tale starts with Gambit using his charm powers as usual to seduce a young lady but end up in tragedy at the hands of Sabretooth. This story involves a couple of completely contrasting plots as it begins with Magneto and Rogue in The Savage Land dealing with a Nick Fury mission against Zaladane the high priestess of the sun people. A free concert put on by by superstar mutant singer Lila Cheney goes when Cable appears to shot Professor X with a bullet that infects him with the techno-organic virus.
General release copies were dye transfer reduction prints in the standard 35mm format. White Christmas was the first VistaVision film given both horizontal Eastmancolor as well as dye transfer reduction 35mm presentations. Paramount suggested cropping the image to 1. It is uncertain whether Technicolor ever manufactured 35mm horizontal eight sprocket dye transfer prints.
The major advantage to the process was a dramatic improvement in the conventional 35mm dye transfer prints. By reduction printing a large negative to a conventional 35mm size set of matrices, the grain structure was shrunk, which resulted in an ultrasharp IB print. The fine grain image could be cropped and enlarged for the CinemaScope screens without a loss of quality. When standard 35mm dye transfer prints were cropped and enlarged, apparent grain was increased, since so little of the available frame was being projected.
VistaVision retained a fine grain image when given this kind presentation. The general release VistaVision prints were so impressive, Paramount eventually phased out large format horizontal positive prints by and used the process exclusively for dye transfer reduction printing. Technicolor had a series of masks they used for the latter, although most were reduction printed with a 1.
White frame-line markings were contained on the first shot of each reel. Original 35mm dye transfer prints of these titles were true works of art and vastly superior to the Eastmancolor reissues of the eighties. Many of the early films were given large format presentations. All were reduction printed to standard 35mm Technicolor. Other studios adopted their own cropped ratios.
The Walt Disney company used a 1. One of the first features to use this projector cropping was Universale 3-D production It Came from Outer Space , presented in a 1. Later releases, like Thunder Bay , advertised as presented in Wide Vision, compensated for the cropping during principal photography so the heads and feet of the actors would not be chopped off, as they were when standard 1.
As previously mentioned, apparent grain was increased and sharpness decreased when films were cropped and enlarged in this manner, since only a portion of the available image was projected. Dye transfer prints held up better than Eastmancolor prints because the rich colors and superior contrast of the former drew attention away from the problems. VistaVision dye transfer reduction prints were best suited for this kind of presentation fig. In , the Technicolor research department developed a method of A and B rolling of the negatives of films processed there.
Each reel of the negative was assembled onto two rolls so that when a fade or dissolve was required, the effect could be incorporated directly into the matrix and the use of the grainy color internegative stock could be avoided. After , most dye transfer prints had sharp opticals, and Eastmancolor prints grainy opticals. Another major development from the research department was the Wet Gate Optical Printer, implemented in The printing gate contained a solution that had a refractive index similar to that of celluloid and that filled in scratches on the base of the preprint with the liquid so that light rays traveled at a consistent angle through the base.
The other color labs did not have this technology and often displayed scratches and cinch marks on their release copies. The superior color combined with the first generation opticals and scratch free image did not go unnoticed by the competing color labs. Throughout the fifties, many labs sent negatives processed at their facility to Technicolor for dye transfer release printing. Many WarnerColor features and some DeLuxe color titles were printed in the dye transfer process.
Some titles were printed in the dye transfer process only in London. There may be more features developed at other labs and printed at Technicolor not included in this list, since no printing records survive for defunct facilities like Warner Color or Ansco Color.

When two interlocked projectors played the two prints, a 2. Only one feature was made in the process, Thrillarama Adventure , which played for one week in Houston, Texas, then closed. Both panels were printed in the dye transfer process, with the left panel in the mag only format with fox sprockets, and the right panel silent with conventional sprockets.
One complete print exists in a private collection. In , Fox tried to upgrade their CinemaScope process by adapting it for use with a large format negative. Kodak manufactured a special 55mm color negative and print film which was processed at DeLuxe.
They named the process CinemaScope It used the same anamorphic compression as the 35mm format, retaining the 2. Since a larger negative was used, sharpness and resolution were increased. Another development was the use of anamorphic prime lenses rather than attachments. A series of lenses was created with different focal lengths that had the squeeze built in which had foreshadowed the Panavision anamorphic system.
Fox noticed the quality of the VistaVision reduction prints coming out of Technicolor and had DeLuxe build them an optical printer to derive standard 35mm scope prints from the 55mm negative. The 35mm Eastmancolor scope reduction prints of the first feature, Carousel , were so sharp that it was never shown in the large format.

The second feature, The King and I , also made in , reportedly played 55mm for some limited engagements. Although better than standard 35mm scope positives, reduction printing in Eastmancolor did not work as well as it did in the dye transfer process. For the reissue, Fox sent the reduction 35mm internegative to Technicolor and had 35mm dye transfer prints made in a cropped 2. Both 55mm features were also printed in the 16mm dye transfer scope process as well.
Future large scale Fox films were shot in 65mm. In the rush to widescreen, Howard Hughes and his RKO company wanted to compete, but the billionaire had no intention of paying a franchise fee to Fox for use of their CinemaScope lens attachment.
He made a deal with the Tushinsky brothers, equipment manufacturers, to develop a new anamorphic system known as SuperScope. All SuperScope entailed was the adaption of a standard 1. Since the frame was being cropped and enlarged, the resulting dye transfer release prints were grainy and lacked sharpness. The SuperScope prints were made in a 2 x 1 ratio by printing black borders on the sides of the image fig. A projector plate would crop the image, but a standard anamorphic lens could be used. The Tushinskys also made a new kind of lens attachment that was really a box with two mirrors that gave a variable anamorphic compression, in the event future formats were introduced that did not use the standard 2 x 1 compression.
The Tushinsky SuperScope projection attachments were difficult to adjust, and no matter how an operator turned the knob on top of the box to unsqueeze the image, it looked slightly distorted. Since the same 2 x 1 ratio could be achieved by cropping a standard release print without adding anamorphic compression, and since the resulting print had less grain, SuperScope was a pretty worthless process and was quickly phased out after Hughes sold RKO to General Tire in Several features that were originally released in 1.
The last was the most ridiculous; each animated sequence was given a different cropped aspect ratio, including an anamorphic squeeze in some that made the figures appear fat. The only interesting thing about this version was that it was the only dye transfer reissue that contained the Fantasound stereo tracks in the magnetic only format. Future stereo reissues of Fantasia were in the Eastmancolor process and lacked the vibrant colors and rich contrast of the Technicolor originals.
One of the partners in the Cinerama company was veteran theatrical showman Michael Todd. He had supervised the European sequences of This Is Cinerama. Todd had reservations about the join lines that made up the widescreen image and the problems of keeping so many separate elements in synch. He sold off his interests in Cinerama and decided to develop his own proprietary format that would simulate the panoramic image without the join lines and contain the stereo tracks on the release copies. Todd formed a partnership with Dr. A set of extremely wide angle lenses was developed that attempted to replicate the field of vision of Cinerama.
Todd had Kodak manufacture him a special 65mm negative stock for principal photography. For contact positive release prints, Kodak developed a 70mm stock. The extra 5mm was necessary for the six channels of magnetic strips applied to the base inside and outside the normal sized sprockets. The projected aspect ratio was 2. The Todd AO 70mm release prints, with their improved sharpness and resolution, represented the best quality available in the Eastmancolor process at the time.
Since the wide frame was spherical rather than anamorphic, Todd AO prints displayed none of the distortion associated with the CinemaScope attachments.
