The Ghost of Hollywood is a podcast and late night radio show hosted by Poxy Lynard and Ms. Ragan.
Alien Space Avenger / Technicolor Movies: The History of Dye Transfer Printing
Poxy and Ragan interview Richard W. Haines (Splatter University, Class of Nuke 'Em High, Head Games, etc.) about his 1989 Sci-Fi cult classic, ALIEN SPACE AVENGER. For this film, Richard would use the dye transfer process, which was initially developed and marketed by Technicolor until 1975. In 1989, Richard would travel to China, where he would complete his prints at the Beijing Film Lab, which was the only location currently using this dye transfer process by that time. Later, he would go on to write several books, one of which covered Technicolor movies and the history of dye transfer printing. It is this book, Technicolor: The History of Dye Transfer Printing, that Poxy and Ragan also discuss at length as they and Richard dive deep into the history of Technicolor films and how they were created.
