comment How are older movies post-converted to 3D?
@Incognito, I agree that you did answer my question, and upvoted your answer to offset the -1. However the first line was a little misleading and sounded like you were just going to explain how 3D works. Your links were useful, but I accepted Advicer's answer because the second article he linked to addressed more of the issues in my question.

The comments in the second article (Art of Stereo conversion: 2D to 3D) you linked to, by people that actually worked on some of the conversions were very interesting. That article also answers the questions in the second paragraph of my question -- it is still mostly a manual process, involving hundreds or more artists.

comment Why does Jack Nicholson say “Here's Johnny!” in The Shining when his character is called Jack?
Also, Jack is a nickname for John so it fits with his character's name too.
