I have no problem with proper discussions. Color was derived from a combination of original 1958 35mm dye transfer prints, original costumes and other color samples, as well as input from multiple people on the Hitchcock production team, inclusive of Henry Bumstead and Peggy Robertson.(original quote removed by ownership)
I have no doubt that it's different but different doesn't mean that the VHS is correct. What evidence is there that the VHS is how Hitchcock wanted it to look? RAH can speak to it (if he wants to even engage in this nonsense before it gets deleted by the moderators) but I'm assuming that the restoration team looked at prints and did research to get the look that they did.
Also, attacking a restorationist online won't make you feel any better.
