Blu-Ray News #177: Sangaree (1953) In 3-D.

Directed by Edward Ludwig
Starring Fernando Lamas, Arlene Dahl, Patricia Medina, Francis L. Sullivan, Charles Korvin

Kino Lorber Studio Classics and the 3-D Film Archive have announced the upcoming 3-D Blu-Ray release of Sangaree (1953).

Sangaree was to be another Pine-Thomas picture, but Paramount picked it to be their first 3-D production. Shooting was underway when the 3-D decision was made, so some scenes had to be re-shot. Be sure to read all about it here and watch for the Blu-Ray in September.

    Thank you so much for the link to the wonderful “inside story”
    to SANGAREE….what a lovely trip down memory lane.
    I thought Ludwig did a wonderful job exploiting the charms of the
    film’s two super sexy stars.
    As one critic explains among the press cuttings there is the scene
    of “that kiss” which I thought was very daring for the era.
    As the critic explains Arlene visibly bites Fernando’s lower lip after
    a very intense kiss.
    As good as SANGAREE is Ludwig’s JIVARO is even better-
    I remember vividly the “unrequited lust” between Fernando and
    gorgeous Rhonda Fleming as they venture down the Amazon on a
    hot and steamy night.
    To think Fernando actually got paid for romancing these two
    iconic redheads…some guys…..

    Toby, thanks for the wonderful link to 3darchive. I really enjoyed the article about SANGAREE in 3-D. They just don’t make movies like this anymore. Also, the stunning beauty of Arlene Dahl and the handsome Fernando Lamas didn’t hurt at the box office. Another winner from the Pine-Thomas production team. They knew what the public wanted for entertainment and gave it to them.

    I agree with John K concerning what a lucky man Fernando Lamas was.
