A most pleasing effect of double toning
28 July 2014 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A dramatic film issued by the Great Northern Film Company this week, is a good example of the excellent progress this concern is making in cinematographic art. We happened around while the Board of Censors were sitting in judgment on the film and the opinion expressed by one member of the Board was that it was the "best film that he had yet seen." The actors are well adapted to their parts and the scenes are well laid and the photography up to their usual high quality. This concern has introduced a most pleasing effect of double toning, which, especially in their film "From the North Cape." shows up with striking effect. The rocky coast is shown in a natural brownish hue, while the sea and sky show well in a blue-green. - The Moving Picture World, April 3, 1909
