this makes me happy
The women in this film were probably around 18-22 years old - so they were all born around 1900 or the turn of the century.
If they were alive today, they'd be about 110 to 114 years old. In other words, they're all dead and they probably died in the 1950s or 1960s.
The youngest girl looks as if she is about 8 - so she would have been born in 1916, and would be 94 if she were alive today.
Every movie made before 1980 is a zombie flick.
How long before they figured out it's like 100 times better when someone is ejaculating on their faces?

Ladyshapes with Alan Partridge rapidly goes downhill after this episode.
I'm kind of blown away because Kodachrome wasn't released until the 30s. This looks a lot like very early technicolor which shot two frames at once, one red and one green. That red and green look is characteristic of all early color film and animation.
Not to correct Kodak, but they didn't release Kodachrome until 1935 and this looks nothing like what they did end up putting on the market (for instance, there's blue in Kodachrome). It almost looks like tinting, so it might be AUTOCHROME, developed in the early 20's by Kodak, which is a really amazing early color format that involved projecting light through died potato starch on glass plates, but as with additive color it had difficulties with blue and violet. It gives it that really weird ethereal look, like you are watching a moving painting.
I'm not at all film-tech savvy so I wonder if that old "strobe effect" is due to film speed changes or the quality of the film stock back then?
Projecting these old films is an art of its own. Both the camera and projectors were hand-cranked. There's a blog post that the YT page links to where they talk about this specific footage a little (they did say the film thickness factors in):
