 April 8, 1953: first big Hollywood 3D film

Bob Fosse dances in it and Ann Miller sings a song with the refrain "dick, dick, dick, a dick, dick, a dick, dick.

James Cameron. Aha , he came back with a bang, Da-Dimension. People flocked and waited for the movie as if they were waiting for summer holiday seat.
