Wings of the Hawk 3-D Blu-ray is Must See 3-D™

Wings of the Hawk 3-D Blu-ray cover art

Another "Must See 3-D™" film restored to glorious 3-D Blu-ray is the 1956 western Wings of the Hawk, starring Van Heflin, Julie Adams (of Creature of the Black Lagoon fame) and George Dolenz. The film was directed by Oscar "Budd" Boetticher. The Blu-ray is available from Kino Lorber, currently at 40% off the original price. Again, The 3-D Film Archive restoration is awesome. The dedication to quality and detail is saving these films in the 3-D format for film lovers and generations to come.

Gringo miner Irish Gallager (Heflin) is caught up in the Mexican revolution of 1910-11 when corrupt administrator Colonel Paco Ruiz (George Dolenz, Scared Stiff) unjustly seizes his gold mine. Gallager saves the life of guerrilla leader Raquel Noriega (Adams), then finds there’s a price on his head; he becomes romantically involved with her in the course of a series of rescues and ambushes, leading up to Pascual Orozco’s (Noah Beery, The Spikes Gang) march on Ciudad Juárez.

Momenta Art Exhibit View-Master® Reel is in the Works

El Camino College is hosting the online exhibitionMomenta by Lauren Kasmer, a multidisciplinary artist, until May 9, 2021. Momenta includes various mediums of art such as non-narrative videos, otherworldly landscapes, wardrobe and furniture installations, photography and more.

Hosting the exhibit online was a challenge for Kasmer, considering past exhibits included interactive art that would include guests which participate in the installations to include invited chefs that would cook thematically related food in relation to her art and also invite people to try on the wearable pieces that were a part of the installations.

Kasmer is also planning on making several announcements of physical items that will be available to acquire from the Momenta website such as one a limited edition View-Master® inspired reel of imagery from the exhibit currently in the works.

The Momenta exhibit is available on the El Camino College Art Gallery page.
