Countless New Galleries and a Tagging System

Unread post by BFlueckiger » Sat Nov 03, 2018 11:04 am

Dear Nitrateville Community

During the last year we visited many film archives again and captured countless photographs of historical nitrate prints for the Timeline of Historical Film Colors:

http://zauberklang.ch/filmcolors/timeli ... ecords=all

Right now there are about 14'000 photos in more than 450 galleries. Many galleries contain photos from different prints for comparison (check out the compare function to show them side by side).

A brand new tagging system allows users to tag photos and galleries individually, please read the description including a short screen video here:

https://filmcolors.org/2018/10/01/tags/

and we implemented a "hall of fame", you can optionally leave your name and e-mail address when you tag.

I am looking forward to receiving your feedback and seeing all your tags!

Very nice! One thing Nitrateville has taught me over the years is the power of the hive mind. 8)

Great site! I didn't know much about Friese-Greene's work before perusing his section, and was happy to find The Open Road on YouTube in very nice quality (for YT).

Amazing site!

Okay, I have a mint Technicolor print of THE MIKADO. But I do NOT have the "Little List" sequence, deleted after initial release for obvious reasons!

:shock:

I wondered why the song wasn't included in my old Image (I think) DVD of the film. Is it included in the newer Criterion edition? (EDIT: Yes, it is.)

This info hasn't made it to the IMDb listing for the film either.

Well, the article at Criterion discussed it but has anyone seen the disc with the "Little List" number in it?

I haven't seen the actual disc, but it has Ko-Ko's deleted "I've Got a Little List" as a bonus extra, not sure why it wasn't put back into the film, unless it's of lesser quality than the rest of their transfer of the film.

Sounds amazing, you have a mint Technicolor print? And where is this?
