What's new

Any other two Technicolor films pre 1930 that could look at as good as King Of Jazz? (1 Viewer)

Not a matter of locked away. It’s a matter of what survives in OCN form in two-color. I believe Phantom does.

When you mention Phantom, are you referring simply to the Bal Masque sequence, or have the other sequences supposedly shot in the format turned up (I remember some color footage from the opening ballet sequence turned up a few years ago, but I don’t know if that was from the negatives)?

Both of these films (Follow Thru and The Vagabond King) would be great releases. I've seen both theatrically - Follow Thru looks great and The Vagabond King has come stunning color design. They need to be more available!

Are there color sequences on the roof of the opera house?

What a great film - the audiences must have been stunned to see sequences in color! Two years later King of Kings those scenes look great in that film

Was the entire film shot in color?

No. Only a few select scenes from Phantom were shot in color. The only such scenes that have turned up so far are the first half of the Bal Masque scene (the Photoplay restoration digitally colorized the second half of the scene) and some footage of the opening ballet sequence, though I’m not sure if that’s the other scene Robert was referring to. The rest of the film was shot in black and white and was tinted for release, with the Handschiegl inserts in the rooftop scene.

UNBELIEVABLE! No one can find relatives of DaSylva he was a Paramount exec for years! DaSylva passed 1950 Ray Henderson 1970 guess we have to wait to any chance of copyright expires looks like no heirs so good chance no more copyright
Other titles have gone Pd, oversight or just a lapse in judgment on someone's part result in a wonderful film tossed on the heap of PD...
