When were color movies first produced?

Answer

The first color movie was produced in 1902. The process involved using black-and-white film that was later run through color filters. Technicolor, which involved the use of color film, was introduced in the 1930s.

In 1899, British cinematographer Edward Raymond Turner developed and patented a process to produce color movies. Turner's invention used black-and-white film and projected it through red, green and blue colored filters. The final result is considered to be the earliest known color film footage. George Albert Smith improved upon this method and commercialized it under the brand name Kinemacolor.

It wasn't until the 1930s that color film was available as a replacement for black-and-white film. Although Technicolor, the trademarked name given to this cinematic process, wasn't widely used until 1935, there are films dating back to 1916 that were produced in color. Prior to the three-strip process that was introduced in 1935, earlier methods used a two-color (red and green) process.
