Motion picture print process
The first Polacolor was a post-World War II process for making 35mm color motion picture prints for theatrical use. It was a three-color dye coupler process that produced full-color images in a single photographic emulsion. As an alternative to the dominant Technicolor printing process, Polacolor had advantages over the contemporary Cinecolor process, which yielded two-color prints that reproduced only a limited range of colors and had the two component dye images in separate emulsions on the front and back of the film base.
While Polacolor did not see much use past short subjects and advertisements, Paramount Pictures used it in the following series:
Screen Songs Cartoons: Base Brawl, Captown Races, The Circus Comes to Clown, Lonestar State, Sing or Swim and Winter Draws On.
Popeye Cartoons: Popeye Meets Hercules, Robin Hood-Winked, Pre-Hysterical Man, Snow Place Like Home, Wigwam Whoopee, A Wolf in Sheik's Clothing, Symphony in Spinach, Lumberjack and Jill and Hot Air Aces.
Noveltoon Cartoons: Flip Flap
The process was not very successful, and Polaroid discontinued it in 1949.
