Initially it had been proven in

Smell-o-Vision as Scent of Mystery, a comparatively unsuccessful

venture. Then Cinerama acquired it from Todd in early 1960s and re-cut

it shedding about 14 minutes for any Cinerama release as Holiday In Spain.

Regrettably the initial Scent of Mystery version no more



arranged for Holiday In Spain in the door of Cine/Teatro Albniz in Calle

2 yrs ago Dave Strohmaier and

John Sittig made the decision to drag all the available film components from the

Cinerama vaults, both 65mm negative and print materials for that title to determine

whether it was easy to rebuild the Holiday In Spain version.

After about 5 several weeks of intensive digital cleanup and renovation work

the finished Holiday In Spain was ready for that 60th anniversary

of Cinerama in the Cinerama Dome in nov 2012.

Upon hearing this rare film, that was largely filmed in Malaga had

been reconstructed and re-mastered, Festival director Juan Antonio Vigar and

local newspaperman and movie historian, Francisco Grinan contacted David

Strohmaier about the potential of showing the show only at that years

festivities. Dave and the wife, Carin-Anne Strohmaier travelled to Malaga several

days prior to the screening to provide the show for Cinerama and also to perform a short

video around the many locations used in the region that may be utilized as extras

for that eventual Blu-ray and DVD release. The showing would be a resounding

success as numerous Malaga locals were curious to determine the show, that they had

only learned about for several years and which featured Liz Taylor within an unbilled

cameo role. Apparently Liz Taylor after which husband Eddie Fisher had produced

a significant local stir once the filming required devote Malaga within the summer time of
