Yesterday, during a discussion about movies (prompted by The Lorax) I asked the students if they knew what the first color movie was. I encouraged them to go home and research. I honestly didn't think anyone was going to do it, but today a couple students shared their answers. I believed that it was "The Wizard of Oz," but after some research it turns out that the answer is not so straight forward. If you Google search for "first color movie," you will see that there are many answers. I used IMDB.com as my official source and discovered that the first "color" film was Le clown et ses chiens (a short film) made in . The first full length feature that I found was Treasure Island in 1920.
Sorry this turned out to be so complicated. Hopefully, my future challenges won't lead to so much controversy. :)
