Last Film Made in Two-Strip Technicolor, 29 December 2002
Author: Thomas Mayer (tjmayerinsf@hotmail.com) from San Francisco

This film was the last Hollywood film produced and released in two-strip Technicolor and the last silent film produced in Hollywood.

The film was beautifully filmed in Bali, and has a musical soundtrack with titles (no dialogue). Legong was produced by Bennett Productions, and originally released by Paramount International (outside the US only) due to concerns about brief female nudity in the film. However, later in the 30's the film apparently showed up in various mutilated versions in so-called "grind houses" in New York City under various lurid titles. The UCLA Film and Television Archive restored Legong in 1999, using prints from the US, Canada, and the UK. The Archive plans to restore one other two-strip Techicolor film, Kliou the Killer Whale, also directed by Henri de la Falaise and released by Bennett Productions.
