This chapter looks at the other steps carried out to improve color photography for motion pictures. This led to the use of the anaglyph, followed by the shadowgraphs. It takes a look at the first traces of the motion picture system, through the twin-strip 3-D motion picture system that debuted at the Selwyn Theater. It also looks at the developments to stereoscopic film that was advertised at the time to feature images that seemed to “pop” out of the screen.

Keywords:   color photography, motion pictures, anaglyph, shadowgraphs, motion picture system, twin-strip 3-D, stereoscopic film
