Time for a touch of colour this Friday with the first three-strip Technicolor feature length film 'Becky Sharp.' This 16mm print is the Cinecolor re-release on Kodak stock edge code "Circle square edge code" for 1944. It is an original Cinecolor print.

Cinematographer Ray Rennahan  (Becky Sharp) 1935 The pioneer cinematographer for 'Becky Sharp' was Ray Rennahan using the newly devised three-strip Technicolor camera. The camera held three rolls of black and white film stock, one utilising a prism, and two as bipack. To capture the colour image, a tremendous amount of lighting was required. The speed rating of early Technicolor was a mere 5 ASA.
