seen a very early Salome which was hand coloured
3 March 2005 | by (London, UK) – See all my reviews

Have seen early Salome which was hand coloured, it was part of a series which had stories about RUTH, SAMSON, ESTHER and other bible stories

Quite interesting to see, gentleman who has copies seems to guard them with his life, must because those I have seen are still on nitrate stock.

They all seem to run about 15 minutes at silent speed and quality good for age, better then restoration on Faust, not as good as Metropolis.

No work has been done to restore them as the are just laying a vault. Static camera, but they do tell the story.

The Ruth film felt was best of bunch, would suggest as the set seems to exist could make a good DVD as prints looks fairly clean.
