Could this be describing today? … No!…. What’s considered ‘The Golden Age of 3D’ was actually from 1952 to 1955!
Film-makers have attempted to create the ‘illusion of depth’ since the earliest days of film. Experiments with 3D movies as we know them—with glasses—actually started as far back as 1897! But most attempts were for novelty, or impractical, and never got off the ground as a serious format for film until the 1950’s.
