Four James Bond classics to be digitally restoredMay 7th, 2009 - 7:15 pm ICT by IANS
London, May 7 (IANS) Four James Bond classics are to be digitally restored to mark the centenary of producer Albert R. ‘Cubby’ Broccoli, who financed the movies.
Distributed by classic film specialists, Park Circus, the films — “Dr. No”, “From Russia With Love”, “Goldfinger” and “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service” — will be digitally restored frame by frame by Lowry Digital Images, the world’s leader in digital restoration and image enhancement, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
The process involves taking moving pictures that show signs of age and wear, removing the fading, dirt, scratches and other defects that occur over time, and returning them to their original condition.
The restored classics will also be re-released on consecutive Sundays in over 60 cinema halls across London in June.
The films will be screened via the UK Film Council’s Digital Screen Network, lottery funded through the UK Film Council’s Prints and Advertising Fund.
