Painstakingly researched, The Dawn of Technicolor is the definitive book on the history of this technology. There is no resource anywhere that will have the level of detail and the volume of information on early Technicolor. It sets the standard for future scholarly works. This book comes highly recommend and is a must for your film studies library.

I would have given it five stars, but the writing style drove me crazy with its constant repetition of things. If you've ever watched a show where they say "when we come back after the break..." and say what you'll see, and then recap what you just saw when you do come back, that's what this was like. But if the style can be ignored, there is definitely a lot of very good information here.
