placing the camera so that a miniature looks perfect on the screen.

"Bug Eye" Lens
The Todd-AO (Todd-American
Optical) process uses a 65-millimeter
film in a camera fitted with a "bug
eye" lens nine inches in diameter and
of very short focal length. In the
theater this film is projected on a
wide, deeply curved screen without
distortion. Oklahoma! was the first
feature picture in which the process
was used, and audiences were fascinated by the realism and third-
dimensional effects that were achieved.
The accompanying high-fidelity sound is
projected from five or six loudspeakers
placed above the screen.
