Of the Kliegl brothers' designs, the one that had the greatest impact on the
cinematic world was a bright carbon arc lamp that allowed
directors to make night appear to be day, and to make every
day sufficiently bright. The light was called a Kliegl light, and

Hollywood trademark as famous as the Kliegl brothers'
invention: the perpetual wearing of sunglasses."
