I haven't updated new DVD availability in a while, but I'm bringing this over from IVS.

This list is available with more info in a cool database format.

I have a growing appreciation for the 3-strip Technicolor films of the 1930's-1950's. I discovered Robert A. Harris' list of these films in one of his columns at The Digital Bits. He has graciously granted his permission to me to bring his data here. I hope this list will serve to help others who love these unique films...and would like to collect them on DVD. 

This is a list of only those films which were photographed using the 3-strip film process and printed using the imbibition dye transfer process. Technicolor continues as a printing process; however, it's the combination of the photography method and the printing method that makes these films special.

It's an incomplete list. Feel free to post corrections. I would like to keep up with increased the font for those titles that are available on DVD. At this point, I've selected titles that either are now or have been in print in any region and in any quality.

We'll see how the list develops...

Each listing currently shows the film name, studio, and director of photography within groupings by year.

    I believe a little film called Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs released in 1937 by Walt Disney Productions was a 3 strip technicolor release.  Maybe our resident Walt can verify?

    Suspiria (1977) is also an interesting case.  It was not shot using the 3 strip Technicllor process.  It was shot on Eastman Kodak stock and then PRINTED using the 3 strip Technicolor process.  Possibly it deserves an honorable mention?

    The Dancing Pirate is available as part of a cheap set of pirate movies.  "The Pirates of the Silver Screen Collection."  Very cheap, but has a bunch of interesting material in it.  Also features a very early Rita Hayworth appearance.
    "This movie has warped my fragile little mind."
