A kind of "mini" edited together for DVD release in 2004 by Scott Simmon, curator of the National Film Preservation Foundation, from 3 early color films. Two show the Eastman color process and one (the middle one) demonstrates various uses of the Brewster process. All three films have different themes ranging from the lucky drama of a contest winner to a fantasy of Krishna in ballet form. Humurous clay animation and actualities are also included. All three of the these films demonstrate pre Technicolor colored film. Written by
