Great little doc on technicolor.

Didn't know the camera was that big of a beast!

Now I still wonder, Dario Argento's Suspiria--was it shot in technicolor or not? So many sources say it was, but the documentary on the latest blu-ray release, say it wasn't shot in technicolor but printed using the three strip dye process.

In the bonus footage on the CAV Criterion version of Robin Hood you can see one of those massive cameras in action thanks to home movie footage shot by cast.

Defo not shot in "technicolor" using technicolor cameras, the bit below may help clarify - there is quite a bit of babble around a few aspects of the production of Suspiria.

It is often assumed that, to achieve the rich color palette, the film was shot using the outdated three-strip Technicolor process. This was, in fact, not true. No film made after the mid-1950s was shot using this method. This film was instead shot on normal Eastmancolor Kodak stock, then printed using the three-strip Technicolor process, utilizing one of the last remaining three-strip machines. This issue has been confused somewhat by the fact that, on the 25th anniversary documentary featured in the three-disc DVD set, a discussion of the printing process by cinematographer Luciano Tovoli was followed by a diagram showing a three-strip camera.

I knew films at that time needed serious light on set but 100 degrees heat while working, Wow!
