“I still don`t understand why Bwana Devil doesn’t get the recognition it deserves. In many ways, that film turned the whole thing around; it was a catalyst for films today.” — Sidney Pink, Bwana Devil producer, in 1989.
J. R. Eyerman snapped this famous picture at Bwana Devil’s premiere at the Paramount Theater on November 30, 1952. The film was the first American full-length 3D film in color.
The Paramount Theater is better known as the El Capitan. Its address is 6838 Hollywood Boulevard.
