The Origin of Technicolor


What's the word, "Technicolor"? When watching old colored films, both live-action and animated, we often see the trademark in title cards. In the old days, it was the motion picture process that innovated the picture arts.

Technicolor was the reigning innovation in bringing film and photographs to life through color. Found in Boston by Kalmus, Daniel Frost Comstock, and W. Burton Wescott, the name came from their alma mater, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It used to start with a two-strip process, now three -- combining red, blue, and green.
