Cinerama Holiday is a 1955 film shot in Cinerama. Structured as a criss-cross travelogue, it shows an American couple traveling in Europe and a European couple traveling in the U.S. Like all of the original Cinerama productions, the emphasis is on spectacle and scenery. The European sequences, for example, include a point-of-view bobsled ride, while the U.S. sequences include a point-of-view landing on an aircraft carrier. It was enormously popular.[2] Largely unseen for decades, it was released on Blu-ray in 2013, restored and remastered from the original camera negatives.
