Oldest color photographs

Westerners like to believe that we've invented stuff, and Russians like to remind us that Russians invented everything first.

Like color photography, for instance; This one was taken in 1909 (they had to shoot three monochromatic images with different color filters, and then overlay them to get the color image):

This one's not so old (1917-18) but we are not used to see early Chaplin in color:



Someone on the internet suggests it could be "A dog's life" the movie he was recording Question
