The article presents information on a new era of tri-dimensional movies. The stereopticon illusion that was a pastime of great grandfathers is about to become, in tri-dimensional movies, an overwhelming rival of Television in the sphere of optical susceptibility. As to esthetic quality in the optical image, Television assuredly gives the movies, as yet, no competition at all. To prefer TV home entertainment to sitting in a movie house is implicitly to decide that the function of the eyes is confined to registering images, whereas the visual arts, one need hardly note, require the eyes to do more than just see. The limited 3-D, requiring the eyeglasses, produces a tantalizing visual sensation, one seems to be in a dark tunnel at an uncertain distance from a large rectangular peephole beyond which, contracting and expanding, a somewhat unstable tri-dimensional space appears.
