    According to information on Koch Vision and Amazon's website, the dvd release of this British 1960 film is b/w but in fact it was shot in Eastmancolor. I am not sure when the street date is but does anybody have any inside information on this title to confirm this?

    Do you know for a fact that it wa shot in colour, or are you going by IMDB? IMDB often has incorrect information. Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide lists it as black-and-white.

    Last year, when I was in England, I saw several 35mm reels of this film and it was in color despite the fact that the print was faded.

    My sources show the film as having been shot on Eastman Color stock,
    most likely a late variant of 5248.

    The original theatrical posters for the US release - "Playgirl After Dark" - indicate the film being in Eastman Color.

    So what do you expect from Koch? A title properly transferred and mastered, and from a good source as well?
