An undated statement from the Amateur Cinema League regarding the invention "Kodacolor", a color film to be used by amateur film makers. The response to the first demonstration of this invention was very positive. "It made me wonder, if we were to throw onto the screen in this fashion, the face of a loved one who had departed, could we endure it? Would it be too near to coming back from the grave to health, vigor and life?" asks the inventor Hiram Percy Maxim.
