  1. You’re right…it WAS awesome to see in Cinerama. This played at the old Boyd Theater in Philadelphia which also showed Ben-Hur for 2 years in a wrap-around screen. HTWWW had many great effects and gave almost a 3-D experience at the time; however, the story was always secondary and, as a result, has not really held up. Like so many of the films that rely on a special gimmick (e.g., sensurround more recently), take away the gimmick and you have a rather mediocre event. Definitely not as much fun out of the Cinerama element…I never thought it measured up to a top-five nomination. Instead of this one, consider “Hud”, “Toys in the Attic”, or “The Victors”.
