Several years ago, a new dirty word snuck into the language. It may have even made it into some of the lesser dictionaries. It is COLORIZATION. It means taking movies shot in black and white and coloring them. Yecch!
Well, as far as I can tell, that process is as dead as film darkrooms.
For some reason, many people seem to have something against black and white movies. I think this is a mistake. Good directors know how to use the shadows and nuances of black and white to great advantage. Some of the greatest movies ever made are in black and white.
