Facts about

Producer George Pal originally wanted Peter Sellers and Alec Guinness to play the Brothers Grimm, but MGM vetoed the idea.
The second major motion picture filmed in 3-camera Cinerama, although it was released before the first, How the West Was Won.
Rumors that 'Wonderful World of the Brothers Grimm' could never be "restored" because the original 3-panel Cinerama camera negatives were heavily water damaged are untrue. Sources close to Warner Brothers and Cinerama Inc, report there is actually very minimal water damage to one edge of one panel in only some reels, and the Technicolor color separation prints are intact for the entire film. Therefore if any of the water damage actually would show on screen or video, that footage could be replaced with new negative made from the Technicolor separations. 3 color separation reels for each of the 3 Cinerama panels means the replacement process would be costly, but not impossible.
