"There's No Purple Light" (not a feature classic film)

There’s No Purple Light This should not be confused with Steven Spielberg’s “The Color Purple” from 1985 with Whoopi Goldberg, which we can come back to another time. There is a certain correspondence.  

This little short explains the color wheel, and why there is no purple light, even though we can see a color purple as next to red on color wheel.

It has to do with combined signals of rods and cones.

It also has to do with primary colors for paint, compared to mixing light.
