Anything by George Melies. Nothing by computer.

If Melies were alive today, I think that he would use every innovation that movies can utilize including color by computer and 3-D.

An interesting statement philiperic!

I'd personally love to see what today's technology could do to the hand-colored Melies film, A TRIP TO THE MOON, in terms of re-rendering it into 3-D!

Favorite color-to-b&W: NIGHT ON BALD MOUNTAIN from FANTASIA.

In a theatre, and, of course, in the original IB Technicolor, this is magnificent art.

But, years ago, on the Disneyland TV program, I saw this segment as a Halloween special, on our B&W TV, and it was much more dramatically effective, and frightening. Somehow, the color takes away the terror, which was multiplied by the B&W chiaroscuro effects.

"Colorized History"

.....important iconic and historical photos by Dorothea Lange and others---
colorized---and now collected by the Library of Congress.

A search of the internet reveals that hundreds, thousands, of artists are
independently working on this overall project and I, for one, think much of
what they are doing is spectacular, thoughtful, and casts these sometimes
boring images in colorful and often revealing new light.

Some of these images---like the overview of a civil war Nashville, and the front
porch of a North Carolina country store in 1939---are absolutely beautiful and
carefully and thoughtfully rendered into color. I'm glad I'm not so old and grumpy
that I can't accept this new technology and its artists when used in a creative and
thoughtful way.

I absolutely agree, manderley - color by computer is not going away - i.e. we see it in the artwork on soundtrack CD covers and most of time it's done tastefully.
