Glasses for the Wide Screen
3-D glasses inspire some new designs for improving every conceivable movie
Ward Kimball

Ward Kimball, an animation director for Walt Disney, has been in the thick of the latest film-making experiments in Hollywood, directing the first cartoon made in 3-D and later the first made in CinemaScope. But he has been continually amused by the motion picture industry’s scramble after new screen gimmicks. Although 3-D films may prove to be only a fad, Kimball was inspired by the Polaroid glasses to design viewers that would help theatergoers enjoy other kinds of movies. He designed glasses for improving the wide screen (above) and something else in case Hollywood suddenly moves in another direction (below) Before he was through, Kimball turned out the whole fanciful array of glasses shown at right.
