The Kodachrome test shown at Paragon Studios in New Jersey was the first publicly demonstrated color film that would attract interest from the American film industry. Later Technicolor would become the industry standard.
“Most every major Hollywood film from 1922 through the end of the silent era would have either a Kodachrome color sequence in it or Technicolor color sequence as a way of attracting audience interest,” said Pat Loughney, chief of the library’s audio visual preservation campus. “It’s a technical, historical achievement, but it’s important to the progress of inventive work that made motion pictures successful.”
