1922, IN COLOR

Oh, this is soooo lovely. Thanks to a link forwarded by @theangrymick on Twitter, I can bring you this rather incredible little video from Kodak: a test of a prototype color film from (yes) 1922. NINETEEN TWENTY-TWO! Man! There is something quite poignant about seeing something from those days in something other than black-and-white, even if these colors are not really "real." It is a little reminder that the people back "then" were just like Technicolor 3-D living breathing folks today, somehow.

Kodak's post on their site will give you more info about how it was done and more. I am so glad these things are being restored and preserved; SO much in film has been irretrievably lost already. Thanks, Kodak!
