I watched most of this movie for the first time last night on TCM and had a few questions arise. 1) Most of the movie was shown in sepia tone, but some was in black and white. I couldn't make any correlation as to why. Is this simply due to the state of the film's preservation or was it intentional? 2) During several scenes there were sound-effects (i.e. crowd noise, and whip cracks), were these effects added in recently or done for a theatrical re-release years ago? This leads to my next question. 3) Was there an intended score when this movie was originally released that was provided to theater owners or was the music created by local musicians and if so who wrote the score that is now attached to the movie and when was it recorded?. Any information is greatly appreciated.
