The Film Chest Restores In Search Of Ancient Mysteries For An Oct. 28 DVD Release

DVD & Blu-ray Release Report, Ralph Tribbey
Writer/director Fred Warshofsky’s 1973 groundbreaking documentary, In Search of Ancient Mysteries, has been given a full restoration from the Film Chest Media Group and will be on its way to the DVD market place on Oct. 28.

Hosted by The Twilight Zone creator Rod Serling, this production — so well received at the time — was the catalyst that launched the popular In Search Of … TV series in 1977 (hosted by Leonard Nimoy as a result of Serling’s tragic death in 1975 from complications from emergency heart surgery).

Filmmaker Fred Warshofsky examines the then-growing postulation of “Paleo-Contact” driven by tantalizing, and yet unexplained, discoveries and observations that point to extraterrestrial beings having left their “footprint” from pre-history visits.

Of note, within the decade Hollywood would take up the subject with a vengeance.
