Film star
This Technicolor camera is rightly called "Number One." It was the first single-strip, two-color, additive-process camera ever built. The camera was made for the then Boston-based Technicolor Company, whose trademarked Technicolor process initially used two color negatives that were pasted together in a positive print. The company produced only a single film with the Number 1: "The Gulf Between."
