Today’s fun fact is in Technicolor!  Well, you’ll have to use your imagination because it’s had to show color on the radio.  Technicolor is a process of film making, the first version dating to 1916, and followed by improved versions over several decades.  Technicolor became known and celebrated for its highly saturated color, and was initially most commonly used for filming musicals such as The Wizard of Oz in 1939, and Down Argentine Way in 1940.  Also costume pictures such as The Adventures of Robin Hood in 1928 and Gone With The Wind in 1939.  Even animated films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Gulliver’s Travels and Fantasia were produced in Technicolor. “Technicolor” is the trademark for a series of color motion picture processes pioneered by Technicolor Motion Picture Corporation.
