The Only Motion
Picture Of Its Kind!
The Largest and Brightest Screen
In West Texas”
The picture reportedly
achieves new heights In 3-D’s
revolutionary realism by filming
Its climax on the rocketing rides
Of 8anta Monica's Ocean Park
Amusement Pier. It also gives
the 3-D works to the rest of the
film, with hand-to-hand fights,
police chases, crossfires of gun
encounters and fond embraces
in all of which the patron is put
on the receiving end of the ac-
tion by the magic of the 3-D
cameras, the new process which
makes every seat in the theatre
more than a front seat by plac-
ing every one virtually in the
middle of the stage.
Edmond OBrlen In "Man in
the Dark” portrays a gangster
who Is freed of his criminal ten-
dencies by a frontal lobotomy

is a gag and try to beat the in-
formation out of him while his
girl friend, Audrey Totter, uses (
more feminine tactics to get the
"Man In the Dark” again
shows Edmond O’Brien in his
favorite type of screen perform-
ance where he is seen as both
the kingpin of the slickest rob-
bers’ crew and, after the opera-
tion, as the instrument of their
Audrey Totter, making her
first appearance since her tour
of Korea Army camps and her
recent marriage, similarly plays
both ends of the good and bad
girl, as the gangster’s sweet-
heart. She was last seen in Co-
lumbia Pictures’ "Assignment-
The Ocean Park Amusement
Pier was taken over lock, stock
and barrel for location shooting
of the picture’s exciting exterior
chase and peopled with an army
of carnival extras. Another fight
sequence made first use of the
vast roofs of Columbia Studio’s
