In its last days as a European-based firm, the Kinemacolor corporation turned out several noteworthy one-reelers. Filmed at the same time as the company's Paris Fashions, Rambles in Paris offered the armchair traveler a fascinating guided tour of the "City of Light." The film was designed to show off the studio's patented color process, which involved tinted celluloid frames and alternating light filters. According to contemporary accounts, the resultant color images were both dazzling and true to life. Especially exciting was a scene taken at a Paris fountain, with the goldfish rendered in all their shimmering glory. Alas, the special projection equipment necessary to properly show the Kinemacolor product is no longer available -- nor, for that matter, are most of the studio's films.
