Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
The Toll of the Sea (1922) is an American drama film, directed by Chester M. Franklin, produced by the Technicolor Motion Picture Corporation, released by Metro Pictures, and featuring Anna May Wong in her first leading role.
The film was the eighth color feature film, after With Our King and Queen Through India (1912), The World, the Flesh and the Devil (1914), and Little Lord Fauntleroy (1914), all in Kinemacolor; The Gulf Between (1917), in Technicolor; Cupid Angling (1918), in Douglass Natural Color; and Our Navy (1917) and The Glorious Adventure (1922), in Prizmacolor.
The film was the second Technicolor feature, the first color feature made in Hollywood, and the first color feature anywhere that did not require a special projector to be shown. The original camera negative survives except for the final two reels. The film premiered on 26 November 1922 at the Rialto Theatre in New York City, and went into general release on 22 January 1923.
