Offers both a history and a theory of screen color in the first full-length study ever published Provides an in-depth yet accessible account of color's spread through and ultimate effacement of black-and-white cinema, exploring the technological, cultural, economic, and artistic factors that have defined this evolving symbiosis Engages with film studies, art history, visual culture and technology studies in a truly interdisciplinary manner Includes 65 full-color illustrations of films ranging from Expressionist animation to Hollywood and Bollywood musicals, from the US 'indie' boom to1980s neo-noir, Hong Kong cinema, and recent comic-book films
