Photo of the Day

Sirens are beckoning the crew of Ulysses' ship from THE ODYSSEY (1911)

This is a 45 minute silent film of Homer legendary's story. The copy that's easily available only has inter-title cards which are in anything but English. I'd love to have English subtitles of the cards. This scene is cool. A relic for sure but interesting nonetheless.

Why is it blue tinted? I thought that sepia was the standard tint for old films.

The tint sometimes changes according to the setting. They often used blue tint for night scenes.
