The open road : a cinematic postcard of Britain in the 1920s( Visual )

1 edition published in 1926 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Open Road captures Claude Friese-Greene's journey around 1920s Britain by car using his own experimental color film process. Claude continued the work of his father, cinema pioneer William Friese-Greene, and marketed his 'new all British Friese-Greene natural color process' through a 26-part travelogue of Britain, reaching from Lands End to John O'Groats. The color was captured on black and white film by means of a disc of colored filters which rotated in front of the camera. Once processed the images on the film were alternately tinted red or blue/green. When projected at a higher than usual speed a perception of color was achieved. The process was deeply flawed - distracting color fringing on fast moving objects, and contemporary developments with early versions of Technicolor and other systems soon rendered it obsolete. And yet this restored version, using modern digital technology, brings the beauty of Friese-Greene's photography to light. The BFI/BBC co-production The Lost World of Friese-Greene, shown in 2006, followed Claude's steps and tracked down some of the people and places shown in the film
