What are the earliest color films available on DVD? Some color tinting is available in silent films such as The Phantom of the Opera and the remarkable The Black Pirate. So far as I know, the earliest color film on DVD is Mystery of the Wax Museum -- which looked better, to my eye, on laser disc and vhs. What are some other early color titles on DVD? Moreover, what are some of the earliest color films that should be on DVD but aren't? Doctor X and Becky Sharp come to mind, and a couple of shorts that I've seen on TCM (not lately) like La Cucaracha. But I'm not well-informed on early color processes, which films were tinted after the fact and which were actually filmed in color.
