I am very upset about this whole colorization scheme. I adore old movies and think that coloring classics such as "The Maltese Falcon" is an atrocity.
The only good I see coming out of this whole process is that the networks are running more classics. Thank heavens for that little piece of home-based technology, the color knob.
Ted Turner and other mercenaries like him may have the power to leave their mark like so many dogs on our collective heritage. At least the "general public" still has the power to remove the stench with a flick of the wrist.
