Cinerama Adventure is a 2002 documentary about the history of the Cinerama widescreen film process. It tells the story of the widescreen process' evolution, from a primitive multi-screen pyramid process to a Vitarama format that played a big part in World War II, to the three-screen panoramic process it eventually became. The film includes interviews with surviving cast and crew who personally worked on the Cinerama films, plus vintage interviews with late creator Fred Waller.

To simulate the Cinerama experience for The Cinerama Adventure, a special three-panel telecine process termed SmileBox (a registered trade mark of C.A. Productions), was developed by video and film expert Greg Kimble for use in this film; it was later utilized for TV broadcasts and Blu-ray releases of Cinerama-formatted films such as This is Cinerama and How the West Was Won.

It was written, produced, directed, edited and narrated by David Strohmaier; produced by Randy Gitsch; executive produced by David's wife, Carin-Anne Strohmaier; and was presented in association with the American Society of Cinematographers. The running time is 97 minutes.

In 2008, the documentary was released as an extra feature on the DVD and Blu-ray releases of the movie How the West Was Won by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.

Des femmes plantureuses, des monstres mutants et des agents secrets nains… On trouvait tout cela dans les films de genre philippins des années 70 et 80. Envahissant les drive-ins du monde entier, les Philippines sont devenues un eldorado pour les réalisateurs de films dits « d'exploitation », alliant une main d'œuvre bon marché, un cadre exotique et une règlementation inexistante en matière de santé et de sécurité. Ce documentaire retrace l'histoire d'un genre sans scrupules, sans scénarios, sans frontières et - plus souvent que jamais - sans vêtements…

The documentary mainly focuses on the connection between events in the United States during the last century and the attraction that horror films have to moviegoing audiences. Filmmakers, producers, and historians such as John Carpenter, George A. Romero, Tom McLoughlin, and Mick Garris examine and give their opinions on such links between occurring events and horror movie themes. The discussion first begins with the connections found between World War I and films featuring human-like monsters and ideas, such as Dracula, Frankenstein, and The Seventh Victim. The topic then moves on to World War II and the Holocaust, and the widespread atomic paranoia associated with B movies of the 1950s like Tarantula and Creature with the Atom Brain.

Not Quite Hollywood documents the revival of Australian cinema during the Australian New Wave of the 1970s and '80s through B-movies including Alvin Purple, Barry McKenzie Holds His Own, Dead-End Drive In, Long Weekend, Mad Max, The Man from Hong Kong, Patrick, Razorback, Road Games, Stork and Turkey Shoot. From 1971 through to the late 1980s, Australian directors began to take advantage of the newly introduced R-rating which allowed more on-screen nudity, sex and violence for audiences restricted to age 18 and over. "Ozploitation"—writer-director Mark Hartley's own portmanteau of "Australian exploitation"—was a subgenre of the New Wave which accounted for the critically panned "gross-out comedies, sex romps, action and road movies, teen films, westerns, thrillers and horror films" of the era, commonly overlooked in Australia's "official film history". The film addresses three main categories of "Ozploitation" films: sex, horror and action.

Considéré comme le film le plus rentable de tous les temps, Gorge profonde fut bien plus qu'une curiosité pour adultes et une réussite financière. Sorti en 1972, au moment où les Etats-Unis découvraient les mouvements pour la libération sexuelle et les valeurs de la contre-culture, ce film au contenu sexuellement explicite déclencha une tempête sociale et politique sans précédent. Gorge profonde devint un phénomène culturel majeur, dont l'impact se ressent encore aujourd'hui. Plus de trente ans après les scandales provoqués par ce classique du cinéma porno, le documentaire Inside Deep throat examine l'incroyable abîme entre les modestes intentions des créateurs du film et l'héritage qu'ils ont involontairement laissé.
