The Earliest Color Motion Picture film ever seen - 1922 Kodachrome Film Test

Videosby Joey Paur

Here's a fantiasic video that shows us some of the earliest color motion picture film that we've ever seen. I love this! We're watching a monumental event unfold in movie history. I can't even imagine what it was like for some of these people watching this for the first time, it must have been a very cool and exciting experience. To be honest, I'm was more excited about watching this footage than I am for any 3D film.

Watch the video below and share your thoughts on it with us.

This footage is from the George Eastman House collections. Preservation was completed by the museum's Motion Picture Department, a project of Sabrina Negri, a student in Eastman House's L. JeffreySelznick School of Film Preservation and a recipient of the Haghefilm Foundation Fellowship.
