Ryo is very grateful to all the warriors who died or were wounded in the Normandy Assault. It very fitting that the membership of the Gunslot Army should pay tribute to those who paid in blood for our freedom.

Your ichiban magomusuko,

Mostly the Germans, Lena Wehrtmuller (sp) was Hitlers cinematographer and used some color.
Late in the war US had color after they got the Commie Hollywood types to come out from their holes and make some movies/documentaries...

The first methods film colorization were employed before effective color film processes had been developed, meaning that each projected copy had to be individually colorized. The process was done by hand, sometimes using a stencil cut from a second print of the film. As late as the 1920s, hand coloring processes were used for individual shots in Greed (1924) andThe Phantom of the Opera (1925) (both utilizing the Handschiegl Color Process); and rarely, an entire feature-length movie such as The Last Days of Pompeii (1926) and Cyrano de Bergerac (1925).

There had previously been full-color documentaries about World War II using genuine color footage, but since true color film was not practical for moving pictures at the time of World War I, the series consists of colorized contemporary footage (and photographs).

The earliest form of colorization introduced limited color into a black and white film using dyes, as a visual effect. The earliest Edison films, most notably the Anabelle Butterfly Dance series were also the earliest examples of colorization, done by painting aniline dyes onto the emulsion.

Around 1905, Pathé introduced Pathéchrome, a stencil process that involved cutting glass stencils for each frame with a pantograph.

In 1916, the Handschiegl Color Process was invented for Cecil B. DeMille's film Joan the Woman (1917). Another early example of the Handschiegl process can be found in Phantom of the Opera (1925).

I know this to, because my grandfather use to take films back when my mother was growning up. He had some color film back in the 40's of my aunt,mom and uncle.

To get a copy of your dad's dischange papers you need to request a copy of his military records being his next of kin. You will need what branch of the military to served in and the dates when he was in. His Service number and send this to Saint Louis, MO. to the department of Army if he was the Army. Your local VA will have a booklet that has the address to send the request too.

Where to send your request
You can mail or fax your signed and dated request to the National Archives's National Personnel Record Center (NPRC). Most, but not all records, are stored at the NPRC. Be sure to use the address specified by eVetRecs or the instructions on the SF-180. The locations of military service records for active and retired personnel are listed at
Location of Military Service Records.

•NPRC Fax Number :
314-801-9195

Need to ask your mother if they ever made a copy of your dad's dischange papers at your county courthouse.
