Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: THE DAWN OF TECHNICOLOR is the first detailed history of Technicolor's formative years. Authors James Layton and David Pierce recount the first two decades of one of the most widely recognized names in the American film industry, painstakingly reconstructing the company's early years from a wealth of previously untapped internal documentation, studio production files, firsthand accounts, and unpublished interviews. The book is lavishly produced with more than 400 images, and it includes a comprehensive annotated filmography of all two-color Technicolor titles. Technicolor is today most associated with films made during the height of the Hollywood studio era--color classics such as THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD (1938), THE WIZARD OF OZ (1939), and SINGIN' IN THE RAIN (1952). But this celebrated period of creative and technical achievement was possible only after twenty years of tireless research and development.Following its incorporation in 1915, Technicolor developed a series of two-color processes as steps toward full-color photography and printing. Despite success in the laboratory and in small-scale production, the company was plagued by repeated disappointments. The feature films THE GULF BETWEEN (1917), THE TOLL OF THE SEA (1922), WANDERER OF THE WASTELAND (1924), and THE BLACK PIRATE (1926) each showed tremendous promise in photography and color design, but implementation flaws resulted in technical problems and commercial failure. With the support of patient investors and the visionary leadership of Herbert T. Kalmus, Technicolor eventually prevailed against daunting odds to create the only commercially viable color process for motion pictures.THE DAWN OF TECHNICOLOR investigates these vital make-or-break years, as the firm grew from a small team of exceptional engineers into a multimillion-dollar corporation. The authors chart the making of pivotal films in the process, from the troubled productions of BEN-HUR (1925) and THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (1926-29), to the early short films in Technicolor's groundbreaking three-color process: Walt Disney's animated FLOWERS AND TREES (1932) and the live-action LA CUCARACHA (1934). The book spotlights the talented engineers and filmmakers associated with Technicolor, and the remarkable technical innovations that finally made color films practical, changing the film industry forever.
