I´ve got a DVD of Wayne´s "Angel And The Badman" movie which contains both the original black and white movie, plus the restored color version, and I must say I prefer the black and white version. What a crazy idea of adding colors to a black and white movie, but they´ll probably sell a lot of copies of those "restored with colors" movies.
I think it was Bette Davies who complained about such a movie which had colored her hair blond, despite the fact her hair never was blond.

I own some actual 70mm sections of celluloid film footage of the 1956 AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS, also filmed in Todd-AO, and I have to say that they too have faded to just about this same pinkish level. A sad commentary on the ephemeral nature of film.
But the question must also be asked: if everything is converted into digital format, who can say that future generations will have the technology to save THAT format---or that the ravages of time might even break up or even completely destroy digitized images?

Variation from The Last Command: "They not only got us out-numbered but out-pinked." (DISSOLVE TO) "Won't it be pretty when it's restored?"
