Collection Highlights: Technicolor
The Technicolor Corporate Archive was donated to the George Eastman Museum in 2009. The museum’s acquisition of the historic Technicolor Corporate Archive was accomplished with the collaboration and support of the Packard Humanities Institute. The archive’s notebooks, dye bottles, research files, cameras, and printing equipment supplemented the museum’s existing holdings of vintage Technicolor cameras and Technicolor film negatives, including the color separation negatives for Gone With the Wind and The Wizard of Oz.
This video was produced by the Eastman Museum as part of the Technicolor 100, an online exhibition celebrating the centennial of the Technicolor Motion Picture Corporation through highlights from related collections at the museum.
