I guess when Saperstein employed "Woody and many others" to make "What's Up Tiger Lily," he knew in advance that his decision to remake someone else's picture would make film history. If he did, why couldn't he do it all himself?
Sapperstein is not satisfied anymore with a comedy classic, and money; he wants to sell it all off as a creative and talented business decision.
Ted Turner as a business decision decides to colorize pictures because TV revenues will increase from these pictures, and besides, he likes it that way. Turner expresses his creative business talent.
Out of all this, one thing is clear: business and creation are mutually exclusive; choose one or the other. Ask Picasso, Dali, Van Gogh, Hemingway, even Dr. Armand Hammer.
