Color Monsieur Beaucaire Transmission

There is a great historial story behind this photo. This is a true color photo of Valentino. This is a photo from the film Monsieur Beaucaire. This photo in 1924, was transmitted from Chicago to New York. This transmission was the first wire transmission of a color photograph. I am sure many people do not realize that Valentino was involoved in color photo history!
