Here’s an MGM-produced short video all about “La Fiesta de Santa Barbara” from 1935.


Independent Discussion Guidelines

More accurately an early 3 strip Techncolor film (not video), which features Judy Garland with her sisters (The Gumm Sisters), as well as Warner Baxter, Harpo Marx, Gary Cooper, Buster Keaton and many more. It was nominated for the Best Color Short Oscar and as you'll note as on the YouTube post itself, the correct title is "La Fiesta de Santa Barbara"

Had no idea the old Technicolor cameras recorded onto 3 strips of film via beam splitters and filters:

Now I see where the idea for 3 chip digital color cameras might have come from.

Perhaps! besides expanded color range three strip's adavnce over two was that it eventually married all strips into one, whereas the two strip process requires the strips to be cemented together.
Endless disasters of film coming part in projectors etc.
