  • According to these guys, we got the real color! (Or as close as they could get) ... kudos for the effort!
    The tacks won't come out! Well, they went in ... maybe they're income tacks.

  • The colorization was a lot better than it was back in the 1980s, but bottom line is, you don't colorize black and white films. It was a waste of everyone's time and money and Sony eventually released the shorts the way they should have been all along.

    What he said. The whole piece just bored me. Keep your technicolor crayons away from the black and white classics.
    Now you ask me if I believe a man can become a wolf. Well, if you mean can he take on the physical characteristics of an animal, no, it's fantastic. However, I do believe that most anything can happen to a man in his own mind.

  • That was a special feature on one of the the colorized DVDs that Sony put out back in 2004.

    As long as they offer the original B&W version I've never been against colorization. A movie to me that looks weird not colorized now is March of the Wooden Soldiers. It's fine in its original black and white but it pretty much has only aired in colorized form since I was a kid so when I watch it now it's the way I need to see it.

  • I'd love to find these two talking heads nowadays and ask them: "Did you REALLY think that what you were doing was an improvement?".  All the money, all the "research" [for correct colors, etc]...... all for absolutely nothing. Now out-of-print and already forgotten. For all the complaints about the chronological DVD sets [and their recent re-release], I don't recall hearing or seeing a single one regarding the exclusion of the colorized versions of the shorts.

    I actually thought it was because of the colorized debacle that Sony realized there was a market for chronological sets like they ended up releasing (not because people bought them but because of the debacle and poor sales). The 4 colorized discs were the last "themed" releases they put put until finally getting it right.

  • So their extensive research for correct colors consists of browsing Ebay? Way to lose credibility.

    And I still say that the ruby-red "ketchup" should, technically, be colored dark brown since it was probably chocolate syrup-- if they wanted to be 100% accurate.



    Color recipe? My foot!
    A jerk with a quirk may do the work. Or, a turk with a dirk may stick a clerk! Gut gesagt?

  • They could've used a REAL color / shades of grey / dialogue reference - Men in Black ... the Green Canary!
