Today in WTF: The Nazis Likely Filmed 3-D Movies of Jesse Owens

And now for a scoop from 1936 that'll make James Cameron dance: Apparently Nazis may have used "a twin-camera Zeiss Ikon system" to film Olympic sensation Jesse Owens, whose athletic dominance was especially powerful in pre-WWII Berlin. The 3-D technology was employed to accurately declare winners in footraces. That strikes me as pretty amazing footage -- or at least an above-average Reebok commercial. [Variety]
