Description

Advertisement showing a winged female figure, seated beside a cine camera. The two-colour motion picture proces, Kinemacolor, was invented by the British film producer George Albert Smith (1864-1959), and patented in 1906. It was taken up by the American entrepreneur Charles Urban (1867-1942), and became the first commercially succesful motion picture colour proces. First shown publicly in 1908, it was used until 1916. Kinemacolor films were regularly shown in a number of cinemas in the UK and twelve other countries throughout the world. Smith and Urban formed the Natural Colour Kinematograph Company to produce their films.
