Thanks to you and RAH and others I am going to grab The Flying Leathernecks, meanwhile I do see dvd copies of The Flying Tigers colorized out there but won't post links as do not know if they are legit releases
The only good colorization job was Babes In Toyland and released by Goodtimes way back when. I was surprised to learn Frank Capra actually liked early colorization on It's A Wonderful Life then the firm stiffed him and basically ruined his work
Thank you for the screenshots - clearly looks better than the numerous versions out there for years, the look and the handling of the color which was under the rule of Technicolor's Natalie Kalmus on this picture seems to look as Robert Harris described the original prints and this print is...
You would know the market more than I but after years of YUCK on this title it would open up some wallets youtube has a lot of people clicking away and those great restoration clips were really great - got me off the fence on a lot of titles. These clips were great!
WOW - so tired of the YUCK prints out there on this classic, DAY one pre-order! Now wish Mr F reads this and graces us with a restoration clip on this here title would increase pre-orders BIG time PLEASE PLEASE give us some eye candy!
