Trivia
25 October 2006 | by thirdbidSee all my reviews

"Redskin" is included in a four disk 48 film set assembled by the National Film Preservation Foundation entitled "Treasures III: Social Issues in American Film 1900-1934", which is available from Amazon.com and others.

In addition to being Paramount's last silent picture and their first color film (using two strip Technicolor), 'Redskin' was also partially filmed using an early 70mm process called Magnascope (see http://www.moviediva.com/MD_root/reviewpages/MDRedskin.htm)

"Magnascope was a special projection technology that used a wide angle, 3 1/2 inch lens to project a dramatically enlarged image (30 by 40 feet) on a screen that was twice the size of the standard Rivoli screen (15 by 20 feet). Non-Magnascope portions of "Old Ironsides" were projected with a 7-inch lens. An illusion of gradual image enlargement was produced by the movement of black masking on the top, bottom, and sides of the screen to reveal more and more of the enlarged projected image." (http://www.in70mm.com/newsletter/1999/59/rivoli/theatre.htm) ...however the aspect ratio of Magnascope was still 4:3.

The first and only road that serves as the access to the top of Acoma Pueblo's 370' Mesa was constructed in 1929 by the Paramount Famous Lasky Corporation for this production.
