The film is black & white except for a small amount of color in a couple of places. It does not look like color print film anywhere so did they use black and white print film and have it colored in spots or was the whole film done with color print film?

I've only seen this once, but IIRC the film is noticably less contrasty on the scenes with the red cape, which suggest different film types were used.

The 35mm prints of Schindler's List had sections of the film printed on color stock to accomodate the small sections of color. They physically spliced into the black & white print - causing problems at many theaters because the focus was slightly different between the two sections.

Peter, if that is the case, they did a great job of matching the B&W film stock. In the old days (Wizard of Oz) you could clearly see a difference in film stock(Judy running to the door after house crashes).
