Cupid Angling (1918)
Douglass Natural Color Picture
The First Photoplay Made in Natural Colors
A THING OF BEAUTY A POSITIVE PICTURE REVELATION
TO MR. AND MRS. PUBLIC:
The Imperial Theatre announces the first San Francisco Presentation of Mr. Leon F. Douglass' latest natural color film creation, "CUPID ANGLING." To witness this marvelous picture is like viewing nature at her grandest through an open window. The range of tints and hues is unlimited. A child gathering flowers is a green meadow, splashing with golden poppies -- a peacock with its many hued tail in full spread -- a sunset over the sea with a maxfield parrish effect against a salmon pink sky -- all are depicted with startling fidelity. The film play was written by Mr. Douglass and tells a story of spring time romance, which cleverly contrives the introduction of scenes and action that bring out the wonders of the invention, which words cannot adequately describe the picture must be seen to be fully appreciated.
