Technicolor

Feature

Saturday, June 18, 2005

There are certain things we expect at the movies these days — a bucket of popcorn, too many coming attractions, and color on the screen. But when Technicolor was introduced eighty years ago, it was a revolution. Bob Harris, a restorer of Technicolor films, and historian Scott Higgins tell us about how the chemical process changed what we saw on the screen, and what we wanted to see. Produced by Trent Wolbe.
