Panacolor was hyped as a “Kodak-killer” when it introduced its first movie process. The Panacolor cartridge, incorporating 10 rows of a modified 8mm format on a 70mm film, used a cartridge containing up to 350 ft (106,68m) of the 70mm film with a film projection rate of 24 frames/s at 26 ft/min incorporating photographic sound and a left-to-right and vise versa instead of up-and-down transport. The projection unit had been introduced as a rear-screen unit with a direct projection option and incorporated a rotating prism synchronized by means of a sprocket. Each cartridge could contain up to 12 different short subjects, or single-concept films up to 10 minutes running time, with random or successive selection.

History tells us that Panacolor never became the giant it hyped itself to be, resulting in huge losses for its investors. After all, some of the company’s more famous films included such classics as Mother Goose-A-Go-Go, The Castilian, and El Valle de las Espadas. The company went bankrupt shortly after this certificate was issued.
