Exceptional...but not perfect.
19 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This excellent documentary is included on the bonus disc for "The Adventures of Robin Hood". It is terrific from start to finish and is narrated by Angela Lansbury. It begins, not surprisingly, with the earliest color processes and moves right to the history of the Technicolor company and the Hollywood films made using this film stock. In addition, it discusses the supplanting of the three-strip process with the later Eastman process. All of this is very, very interesting for film buffs like myself. My only complaint, and it's a minor one, is that there WERE alternative processes to Technicolor--both the Two and Three-strip film. Why Cinecolor and other early rivals are not mentioned is a bit baffling. And, occasionally, the prints shown seem to be second-rate and over-saturated--which is odd, since it was produced by Turner Classic Movies who owns the rights to most of the films. But considering how wonderfully complete and interesting the film is otherwise, I'll forgive this omission. Not perfect but well worth seeing and one more reason to buy the DVD for "Robin Hood".
