wonderful documentary, needs to be on video/DVD
4 April 2002 | by joe robertsonSee all my reviews

this is a great documentary about the history of Technicolor, the wonderful, lush color film process responsible for so many beautiful motion pictures. like Visions of Light for the history of film cinematography, this documentary shows you the early advances in the technology and has many striking scenes from a variety of Technicolor films. the only sad thing is that i saw this on TCM or AMC (the best things about cable tv), but i don't have cable anymore and really wish i could buy this, particularly if if there was a quality release on DVD!
