    Date: Coming soon
    Place: New York

    Technicolor has a close relationship with GEH, having donated much of the Technicolor “Dr. Richard Goldberg Archive” to GEH about 5 years ago. So who better to produce and publish our new book, The Dawn of Technicolor, than the George Eastman House. Dr. Goldberg was one of the most celebrated color scientists in Technicolor AND motion picture history. In its archive, the GEH also holds the collections of two other celebrated Technicolor color scientists: Dr. Troland and Dr. Andreas. Together, these collections account for the most significant holdings of Technicolor’s past history. The new book is part of an exhibition that will kick off in January.

    Technicolor, Dance Camera West & The Unfinished Dance

    Westwood
    Technicolor will participate in a presentation of the vintage Technicolor dance filmRead more

    unfinished-dance-posterOn Saturday, May 2nd Technicolor will participate in a presentation of the vintage Technicolor dance film, The Unfinished Dance.  A psychological drama from 1947, set against the world of ballet, and starring Margaret O’Brien and Cyd Charisse, the film will be presented by Dance Camera West at the Crest Theatre in Westwood, beginning at 4:30pm.

    Technicolor has a long storied history of providing creative services to films that highlight the subject of “dance.”  That history ranges back to the late 1920’s when the company incorporated sound in its early 2-color prints for theatrical release – supporting filmmakers like Samuel Goldwyn, with films like Whoopee! (with actor-singer Eddie Cantor); directors like Cecil B. DeMille, with films like Madam Satan and its “Ballet Mecanique”; and early choreographer-director Busby Berkeley.

    Arguably the height of Technicolor “dance” films were directed and produced by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, with The Red Shoes, then three years later with The Tales of Hoffmann.

    After World War 2, actor, dancer, choreographer, and director Gene Kelly worked on a string of hits, highlighted by An American in Paris and then Singin’ in the Rain.  Later, filmmakers like Robert Wise and Bob Fosse created masterworks with films ranging from West Side Story and All That Jazz.  More recently, Technicolor provided dailies and color finishing services for director Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan.
