Description Author review of technicolor film - "There have been many fairly successful attempts at coloring films by hand and others which employed mechanical devices. All of these were unsatisfactory, however…[In technicolor] undoubtedly marks a new era in photoplay production. It is impossible to describe the beauty of the shades and tints which the camera lens has caught. Each scene has been selected for its pictorial value, and so artistic were they that they evoked spontaneous outbursts of applause from teh audience which greeted them. Each scene is like a beautiful painting; and it is hardly believable that the characters can move about like human beings."
