Pair of polarised 3D glasses to be worn whilst watching the film 'Bwana Devil', 1952.

Bwana Devil is a 1952 American adventure B movie written, directed, and produced by Arch Oboler, and starring Robert Stack, Barbara Britton, and Nigel Bruce. It is based on the true story of the Tsavo maneaters and filmed with the Natural Vision 3D system. The film is notable for sparking the 3D film craze of the 1950s in the motion picture industry, as well as for being the first feature-length 3D film in colour and the first 3D sound feature in English.

The advertising tagline was: The Miracle of the Age!!! A LION in your lap! A LOVER in your arms!
