Over the past year, the Lost & Found Film Club has become Hollywood's quirkiest showcase of rarely screened, ephemeral, and unclassifiable short films—all presented in the gloriously fuzzed-out 16mm format.
Collecting oddities from estate sales, auctions, friends, and neighbors, its curators have rescued overlooked treasures from oblivion and brought them up the coast for a show and tell brimming with eye-popping experiments, student animations, strange docs, and a 3D short complete with red and blue glasses!
Third Dimensional Murder (1941, 8 min.) by George Sidney
The third of famed narrator Pete Smith's Metroscopix films for MGM, this comic trip through a haunted house is one of the earliest examples of the anaglyphic (red and green) 3D process being used in narrative filmmaking.
