Charles Urban was a giant in early cinema and a most fascinating character, an ambitious and forward thinking American tycoon who enjoyed his biggest success on the other side of the Atlantic. Then he returned to his home country during the last year of The Great War, but competition with Hollywood was too great and his fortunes collapsed in a few years. Sadly, so many of his films have been lost over time even though material that he financed got recycled in films made by other companies.

Fortunately his stock has been on the rise in recent years, with one researcher working more devotedly than others since the 1990s in bringing the attention he deserves. Luke McKernan published a biography on him in 2013: Charles Urban, Pioneering the Non-Fiction Film in Britain and America, 1897 – 1925. According to his website at http://www.charlesurban.com/, we are told the following:

No complete list of all the films that he produced exists, and it would be an almost impossible task to construct one, as he re-edited and re-used his film material so frequently.

Not that I won't try with a small... small “starter” sampling. No, these lists won't be complete. Further more, I am focusing exclusively on the post-1903 period instead of his years with the Warwick Trading Company (which operated with and without him between 1898 and 1915), although I might tackle them on a future date. You folks know that I can't resist the temptation.

Born April 14, 1867 in Cincinnati, Ohio, Charles Urban got started in the movie business when marketing Thomas Edison's Kinetoscopes in Detroit, Michigan in 1895. He moved to the United Kingdom while working with Maguire & Baucus, agents of Edison, before becoming a part of the Warwick Trading Company three years later where he held a top position until February 1903. When he left to start up his own company, he ignited a lawsuit with Warwick by taking some top personnel with him, including Alfred Darling, Thomas Grant, George Albert Smith, John “Jack” Avery as a key co-executive and camera operator and Alice Rosenthal, sister of one of Urban's top cameramen Joseph, as a top salesperson. It didn't take long for the Charles Urban Trading Company to ape his former company as a leader of scenic “factuals” shot as far from the British Isles as one could get. These Urban-Bioscope Expeditions traipsed through Borneo, the Swiss Alps, the major destinations of Europe and “darkest” Africa. In addition to all of the pretty scenery, there was no shying away from the human thirst for violence and warfare, even having cameramen Joe Rosenthal and George Rogers tackle the Russo-Japanese War from both sides.

The official 1903 and '06 film catalogs are quite a feast for the eyes, offering more for British movie goers than even National Geographic offered American magazine subscribers in its early years:

Nickelodeon attendees were also introduced to worlds that weren't so much far away but hard to see with their limited eye sight. F. Martin Duncan made several series featuring amoeba, hydras, bacteria, close-ups of insects, circulation of blood and anything else of interest that required special microscopic lens. By 1908, F. Percy Smith was added to the fold, along with a new sub-company Kineto, with his landmark frame-by-frame time lapse photography of flowers blooming and close-ups of spiders and insects in action. Smith later would work with British Instructional (which I profiled on a separate thread here) and was among the first to document Mother Nature in color as well...

Ah, yes, color... or shall I spell it colour?

Urban certainly deserves credit as one of the great financial backers in this arena. While still with the Warwick Trading Company, he supported Edward Raymond Turner. He patented a system with Frederick Marshall Lee that involved three filters (red, yellow and blue) attached to a camera that exposed different images on consecutive frames of one black and white film roll. A few film clips survive today that were taken before Turner's untimely death in 1903, resurrected from obscurity by the National Media Museum in 2012:

 

Because this first system was rather cumbersome, Urban had George Albert Smith (famous for such landmark novelties as The Haunted Castle and Grandma's Reading Glass) simplify the process to just two filters, making the results less “colorful” but more practical. (Leon Gaumont, however, would return to Turner's three filter concept with his excellent, but still troublesome, Chronochrome system a full decade later.) The black & white film was exposed with a disc of rotating filters, then shown with a specialized projector with matching filters to present it for the screen. In July 1906, his first experiments were made of Smith's children in Southwick, Brighton. By early 1909, a new name was established for this process, Kinemacolor, along with a new Urban-controlled company, Natural Color Kinematograph.

Because each second frame was exposed differently than the frame proceeding it, fast movement of people jumping and horses galloping sometimes created a double-image effect. Over time, the cameramen got around some of this by having much action coming towards the camera and decreasing the amount of side viewed action. The film also had to be projected faster than most other films at 1/32 a second. Some of these issues were fixed later in the U.S. by the competing Prizmacolor and Technicolor companies, which followed the “bi-pack” route of exposing two rolls of film at once, thanks to a special glassware involving two filters, then having the rolls combined as one with special dyes on each side so they can be used in standard 24 frames per second projectors without filters. Urban himself also kept tinkering in later years, even after Kinemacolor ran its course, with his top engineer Henry Joy on another system called “Kinekrom” that almost, but not quite, solved the problems.

Like Cinerama in the fifties and IMAX decades later, early Kinemacolor often involved special theaters and special ticket prices, with its biggest showcase being the glamorous Scala Theatre on Charlotte Street, London. Like the later widescreen spectaculars, these films held the same appeal of presenting far away places in a format unlike any other travelogue at the time; top cameraman John Mackenzie even published a book in 1910 called Rambles In Many Lands. Aside from England and France, major countries presented for the first time in color without tints or stenciling included Belgium, Holland, Germany, the United States, Canada, Italy, Algeria, the Balkans, Egypt, India, Spain, Canary Islands, Greece, Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Japan. Essentially the Urban team was achieving the same goal in motion pictures that Albert Kahn's team did with Lumière Autochrome still photography in Les Archives de la Planète, a collection that survives more complete today. A few separate Kinemacolor companies were established outside of England such as Kinemacolor de France, Luca Comerio operating in Italy and Kinemacolor of America (profiled later on this thread), but the Japanese probably enjoyed the most success with it: Toyo Shokai, renamed Tennenshaku Katsudoshashin Kabushiki Kaisha, maintained a steady output of kabuki play adaptations and scenics through 1917.

King Edward VII was the first royal to be filmed both alive and in funeral procession by the Kinemacolor cameras. Then Smith and Urban's team went all out documenting the coronation of George V, followed by his visit to India in 1911-12 titled With Our King And Queen Through India (a.k.a. The Dunbar At Delhi). This and the Kinemacolor of America's Making Of The Panama Canal are sometimes listed as the world's first feature length films in color, but were viewed at the time as presentations of individual short subjects. Not to be outdone, France's President Poincaré became a subject more than once and Kinemacolor of America made sure two presidents in office, Howard Taft and Woodrow Wilson, were also documented in color. Both the U.S. and U.K. companies covered ex-president Teddy Roosevelt.

While educational films garnished Urban much of his critical prestige, it was obvious that the business of movies had to bring in the cash with plenty of fictionalized comedy, drama and adventure. These were done both in black & white and Kinemacolor, probably half of the latter productions being shot in Nice, France which boasted better sunshine than the British Isles. In addition, Urban also set up Société Générale des Cinématographes Éclipse in Paris to increase his entertainment output. Eventually this company broke off as its own independent operation, becoming the fourth largest film company in France before long.

Among the more interesting films done in England were directed by Walter R. Booth as part of a then popular “trick” fantasy genre, similar to what George Méliès had been doing earlier. His 1912 part live-action / part stop-motion collaboration with F. Martin Thornton and Edgar Rogers, In Gollywog Land, boasts what may be the earliest animation in color, unless one counts Winsor McCay's hand-tinted Little Nemo of the previous year. (I do include cartoons in this thread for a change.)

Another leading director, filming in both countries, was Rotterdam-born Theo Bouwmeester (sometimes listed as Frenkel, his original name, or Bouwmeester-Frenkel, the name I use here). He played Napoleon in Kinemacolor's first fictional production, Checkmated (1910), and later supervised the first western in the process, Fate, set in Texas but filmed in Sussex. The first official color feature (or the first not to be a documentary at least) was F. Martin Thorton's The World, The Flesh And The Devil, a rather torrid melodrama that the critics weren't kind to when it opened at the Holborn Empire on April 9, 1914. There was just one more follow-up feature that summer, Little Lord Fauntleroy.

Urban's ambitious move into all-color features was halted due to some court battles involving the competing Biocolour headed by William Friese-Greene, who accused Urban for being monopolistic over color processes. Although Biocolour ultimately was a failure financially (and Gaumont's more competitive system stayed mostly in France), Urban still had to liquidize the Natural Color Kinematograph and re-organize as a new company, Colorfilms Ltd., dropping the key word “natural” on account of all of the bad press Kinemacolor received for its hardly natural two-spectrum system. Adding to the decline in Kinemacolor was a souring relationship between Urban and George Smith, who hardly spoke to each other until the 1930s.

The war soon took up a huge chunk of Urban's activities, along with providing much needed subject matter for movie screens. He was appointed to chairman of the British Topical Committee for War Films in 1915, but ran into some controversy the following year when he negotiated with William Randolph Hearst for a U.S. distribution deal; Hearst being sympathetic to Germany while his country was still neutral did not go well with the British press at the time. Two key features Britain Prepared (How Britain Prepared) (December 1915) and The Battle Of The Somme (August 1916) nonetheless did well on both sides of the Atlantic. The former featured some rare Kinemacolor sequences of battle, another Urban first. The second strictly black and white film still holds up as an outstanding documentation with stellar camerawork by J.B. McDowell and Geoffrey Malins that has been recycled in many movies, TV shows and YouTube since.

His gradual move of operations to the United States began with his take over of David Horseley's Centaur Film Corporation in Bayonne, New Jersey in March 1917, followed eight months later by the formation of Kineto Company of America at 71 West 23rd Street in New York City to produce a newsreel series called the “Official War Review”. By the autumn of 1918, he had pretty much phased out his British operations and stayed put in America, settling by 1920 with a Stanford White designed building in Irvington, New York and consolidating his companies under Urban Motion Picture Industries, Inc.

Unfortunately many of his big ambitions for the American market didn't pan out well, perhaps because he was too ahead of his time. Among his most interesting novelties involving co-engineer Harry Joy (co-developed with Theodore Brown) was the Spirograph, a disc-formatted projector aimed at bringing movies into homes and schools for personal use, a fore-runner to the “home entertainment” explosion of later decades, first with 16mm and 8mm and then VHS and laserdisc by the '80s. Yet it all seemed way too early for 1920. Had his Kinekrom system been successful, many of his Kinemacolor films would have enjoyed a longer shelf life as reissues in later years, but there were still technical issues involved.

On the plus side, he boasted a spectacular library of material that, along with some newly filmed footage done in America, got used extensively in several series: “Urban Movie Chats”, “Wonders of the World”, “Kineto Reviews”, “Urban Popular Classics” and “Great American Authors”, the last edited by future Traveltalks guru James FitzPatrick. All of these shorts were part of an ambitious program called “The Encyclopedia of Knowledge”, a “thousand-reel” attempt to provide a motion picture counterpart to every library's reference book section. (He also had some involvement in George McLeod Baynes' earliest “Kinograms”, a newsreel that outlasted all of Urban's own series.) Two somewhat successful features were added in 1921: The Four Seasons, supervised by leading New York zoological celebrity Raymond Ditmars and previewed February 18th, and Permanent Peace, released in November to coincide with the Washington Naval Peace Conference.

One later Urban production was a real curio that is likely impossible to view today, if not lost. Evolution: From The Birth Of The Planets To The Age Of Man was supervised by Ditmars with plenty of his own personal animal footage along with some stop-motion dinosaurs by Willis O'Brien (likely lifted from his earlier short The Ghost Of Slumber Mountain). It was first shown at All Angels Episcopal Church in Manhattan, December 1922, despite Ditmars' blatant preference for Darwin over Genesis. Of course, the national publicity over the Scopes' “Monkey Trial” in Tennessee prompted a re-edit and reissue involving Edward J. Foyles of the American Museum of Natural History and the animation team of Max and David Fleischer, whose co-owned Red Seal also handled distribution.

By the time this second version was released in July 1925, Urban was forced to close shop. According to July 1924 reports in Film Daily, his “$10, 500, 000 corporation” had been petitioned for bankruptcy. There was a second, but short-lived, rebooting of the company later by investor C.M. Bortman. Max Fleischer's team once again got recruited to edit material for a new and short-lived “Urban Searchlights” series (one of which is posted on this thread).

By 1929, Urban was mostly retired and back in England. He lost his second wife, Ada, in 1937; she herself had contributed both financially and as a key supervisor for the company since they married in 1910. Charles passed away on August 29, 1942 while still writing his memoirs.

Meanwhile, a large chunk of the Urban library fell through the cracks of court-battled ownership and much valuable source material was either recycled for its chemical components or lost/discarded by accident. This is sad when one considers Urban's motto for many years as “Putting the world before you”, which he pretty much did long before we had cable TV and the internet. What we have today to remember him by are crumbs of a once spectacular film empire.

****

Urban backed many critter reels. The BFI site labels this one The Porcupine- A Prickly Subject, but it could be Animal Drolleries (Kineto 1915, minus the parrot), one of the Animal World Series (1916) or just a hodgepodge of several titles. What is nice about these compilation reels is that they preserve so much valuable footage lost in their original state. The bunny and girl shot may go back a good dozen years or so. The otter, badger and jerboa all appeared in their own longer starring roles in previous years, the otter's 1912 performance is also uploaded on this thread.

Starting with his short British and U.S. films of 1903-1925 before taking on two additional companies that he had only limited involvement with: Kinemacolor of America and Éclipse. All films will be presented in alphabetical order, but with clusters arranged under special series headings. Only the comedies, dramas, animated cartoons and other entertainment films will be identified as such. Everything else is a documentary as many readers will guess by the titles involved.

All films in the U.K. were distributed by the Charles Urban Trading Company, promoted by his own theaters as “Urbanora”. Possible director or cameraman credits are listed in () along with any specific company name that isn't just the Urban Trading Company. Films produced by Natural Color Kinematograph and Colorfilms Ltd. are in glorious Kinemacolor. All others, including the Kineto productions, are in black & white but sometimes tinted.

Again, sources include online excerpts of the British Film Catalogue: Two Volume Set - The Fiction Film/The Non-Fiction Film edited by Denis Gifford in 1995, imdb.com, citwf.com and vintage periodicals that are occasionally referenced with the films.

Because so much material was recycled, I have shortened this list with reissue titles listed on the same line as the original version. That is, those I am certain are reissues. Yes, some titles listed twice may, in fact, be the same film under a different title. This list will expand... and shrink... over time.

Urban Movie Chats (Kineto Co. of America): To save space, I have only listed films I have some information of. Apparently the first 76 shorts were distributed (apart from the first few) by National Exchanges, then a second series of 83, restarting with number 1, were handled by Hodkinson. As you can see, many segments were a hodge-podge of old material stretching a decade or more mixed with more recent (shot in 1918-23). Occasionally celebrity hosts appeared, mostly in the 1922 titles, which gave this series a bit of novelty over the contemporary Pathé Review, Bray Pictographs and other “cinemagazines” even if they tended to lecture too much in title-card sermons; this being something the Film Daily reviewers quickly got tired of, especially due to Urban's fetish for politician hosts. Surviving titles, few that they are, make valuable viewing for the precious recycled footage not easily attainable in its original state.

Kinemacolor of America

flag.jpg

It was the spectacular showing of Kinemacolor films at Madison Square Garden, New York City on December 11, 1909 that prompted three attempts to get the Kinemacolor Company of America started. The first owners were Gilbert H. Aymar and James K. Brown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, later moving operations to New York City. Their initial plan was to just market Charles Urban's product instead of creating their own, since there was quite a bit already there in the Kinemacolor catalog. (See the 1912 edition uploaded here: https://archive.org/details/McGillLibrary-rbsc_catalogue-kinemacolor_ColgateIXNaturalColor-17612 ) Yet just doing that wasn't entirely successful and, within a year, they sold out to another tycoon John J. Murdock. It wasn't until still more changes in management with Arthur H. Sawyer and, by 1912, Henry J. Brock as operating managers that production officially expanded with a new studio established on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles, better for filming.

In addition to a series of topic shorts showing Presidents Taft and Wilson, there were fashion reels, American national park travelogues, a few animal interest reels and, most importantly, new short comedies, dramas and western adventures, mostly directed by David Miles, to compliment the British imports (and one prestigious French import, The Miracle). The first color Civil War recreations were also made, the first being an uncompleted version of Thomas Dixon's The Clansman, which D. W. Griffith would tackle later, and East And West.

For a short while, both the British and American companies cooperated with each other in financing a few productions and exchanging product to theaters in both countries. Then, in dramatic Aries fashion, Charles Urban posted notices in all of the leading trade papers of January 16, 1914, including Variety, that he was terminating all ties with vice president of the American company, William H. Hickey. By now, the company was gradually cutting back on production; a recent move of primary operations back to New York with a focus on legendary stage stars “shown at everyday leisure” wasn't too successful. Most projects started by Kinemacolor were finished by other studios in glorious black and white, among these World Pictures' Evidence and Her American Prince and, of course, Griffith's retitled Birth Of A Nation… which would enjoy greater success and controversy than anything Kinemacolor produced themselves.

Société Générale des Cinématographes Éclipse

On August 30, 1906, Urban bankrolled a new studio in France (the number one film producing country at that time) to help expand his fictional film production. Although his personal involvement only lasted two and a half years, the Charles Urban Trading Company continued to distribute French Éclipse productions in the United States as “Urban-Éclipse” through George Kleine (until 1914), then on a states rights basis through A.R. Ferrand operating in New York City, and as part of “Urbanora” in Britain through 1915 at least. Since my primary focus on this thread is Charles Urban, I will keep the details on Éclipse brief. Yet this company certainly needs more attention online.

Richard Abel's The Ciné Goes To Town: French Cinema 1896-1914 (University of California, 1994) gets into some of the nitty gritty of this forgotten studio that... surprise!... actually ranked number four in its country during the years leading up to the great war. In the beginning, George Hatot of Pathé and Victorin Jasset of Gaumont were recruited (better to drain the competition in order to compete), pushing the overall quality up. By 1908, it absorbed another smaller but ambitious company called Radios (which I've included a few early titles below) and made great use of its elaborate glass studio-house built in Boulogne-sur-Seine, the western end of Paris.

One of Éclipse's biggest hits was The Near-Sighted Cyclist, a film that only made the DVD cut in early 2018, making an international star of Madrid-born Marcel Perez. His comic style was a forerunner to both Harold Lloyd and Buster Keaton with a lot of physical stunt work involved. Since his association with Éclipse was brief, the staff had to groom others to take his place, among them Ernest and Charles Servaès with such personas as Arthème Dupin and Polycarpe (marketed in the U.K. and U.S. as Sammy) and the Brit-moved-to-France fashion model Aimée “Miss” Campton.

Then there were westerns featuring Joë Hamman since, heck, you don't need Monumental Valley as your background when the French countryside does just as well, and detective who-done-its featuring characters Nat Pinkerton and Barnet Parker. Most ambitious were the period costume dramas, often set in medieval France or England, but also Rome as well. Much attention was given to costumes and period detail to get it right, although we don't have enough surviving films to determine if the newspaper and film magazine critics' praise was justified. These were also among the earliest films to list actor/actress credits since French stage actors were a lot less timid than their American counterparts in admitting “oh... we also work in flickers”. In typical European style, the stories were littered with sexual infidelities in marriages, kidnappings of children and crimes of murderous passion, giving American Nickelodeon attendees a good taste of things to come, predating prime time TV soap dramas.

The studio made its first “official” feature film, the Louis Mercanton directed Vendetta, in 1914, but it had been gradually expanding in this direction for two years with three and four-reelers and was especially encouraged by its successful distribution of, but not production of, Queen Elizabeth, a Sarah Bernhardt vehicle that put Adolphe Zukor and his Famous Players (later Paramount Pictures) on the map. Most of the later Éclipse productions between 1915 and 1923 ran 50-90 minutes, but I have included a few later shorts under 40 minutes here despite Urban not being involved much later. With the British firm providing most of the educational goods released alongside these, the French company didn't make many “scenics” but there was a short-lived newsreel called “Éclipse-Journal”.

Special note: the following list is a mess. It is quite likely that I “double dipped” with some titles below. French titles often received multiple English translations to please Brits and Yanks separately. Likewise, some titles may not even belong here, possibly being British productions that I merely think are French. Even the imdb.com site gets confused over origins, often not matching up with information in early 1910s periodical scans.
