Claude Friese Greene, cinema technician, filmmaker, and cinematographer from 1898 - 1943, he came up with a process which his father had been working on whereby colour could be added to black and white film frames by way of a special process he pioneered (crudely explained by me, sorry).
It was called Biocolour.
He certainly was a cinematographer of immense talent. He made some amazing films in the early part of the 1900's, here is a small selection of some of the street scenes of London. These were taken from a long film detailing his drive from one end of This Sceptered Isle to t'other in 1926.
His story is one of adventure and some drama too for, apparently, he took his colour process over to Hollywood hoping to make his fortune probably .. after all, they didn't have anything as good at the time .. things didn't quite work out for him there after he was introduced to the Big Boys - they in-turn introduced him to Steely Dan ..
