Science: Color Cinema

Working alone in his Newark, N. J., laboratory Frederick T. O'Grady, inventor in his late 30's, produced a system of color cinemagraphy that has some advantages over the system recently worked out by the vast Eastman laboratories.

The Eastman system (Kodacolor), exploited a month ago with appropriate ado (TIME, Aug. 6), uses a corrugated film. When projected upon a screen the pictures are excellent. But the screen may not be larger than 16½ by 22 in. If larger, the images show the corrugations of the film. And no copies of the film can be made.
