Discussion of three strip Tecnicolor in movie trailers
Includes: Index, actual film strips for comparison, notes from the reviewer, Laserdisc with commentary by Richard Haines and was apparently designed as a companion to his book on Technicolor processing..
These notes are from LDDB.com:
Publisher is listed as Motorcade Entertainment, Trenton, NJ. Documentary on motion picture color processes such as Technicolor, Eastmancolor, etc. Includes numerous film trailers, promotional featurettes, and one complete 1934 short, "La Cucaracha", which was the first film shot in Technicolor. Some of the trailers are presented pan & scan, and others are letterboxed. Most of the letterboxed trailers are presented in 1.85:1 aspect ratio, but at least one is 1.66:1. The digital audio channels contain the original film soundtracks. The analog audio channels contain commentary by independent film producer, director, distributor, and archivist Richard W. Haines. On analog channel 1/L, he discusses color and widescreen processes. On analog channel 2/R, he discusses the background of the films themselves.
The disc is packaged in a generic standard-type Pioneer jacket. Includes a 2-sided black & white insert with chapter list and notes by Richard W. Haines. Also enclosed is an envelope with 4 sample strips of 35mm film frames from Technicolor films. Apparently, this disc was released in very limited quantities. In fact, my copy is hand-numbered "#023" on the back of the jacket and on the disc labels.
Quality: Package, disc, strips and notes are in excellent condition
