American Film Technologies (AFT), as part of a new deal with Ted Turner's Entertainment Co., will deliver colorimaged--a new word the company coined for colorizing--versions of the classic films, " Boom Town" (Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert), "They Were Expendable" (Robert Montgomery and Donna Reed) and "Catered Affair" (Bette Davis and Ernest Borgnine). Turner's company then has an option to have AFT color up to 49 more black-and-white films by 1992 for approximately $14 million. And as for colorimaged , AFT President Bernard Weitzman said the word wasn't invent to obfuscate the controversial process; it simply "distinguishes" their digital computer system from other processes currently used.
