  1. Let me tell you something.I am looking forward to my pre-ordered copy.The fact is about his film is that the two color technicolor is slightly enhanced, but, it's not drastically changed.Still, it should not have been touched.I saw Mab Hollywoods modern trailer advertisement on Vimeo.Most of the scenes color remained pure, but where there was a green reflection on skin tones to props it, it was removed.I'm guessing that the preservationist wanted to bring out the colors marked by the green without making it look like 3 strip technicolor.Once again, probably, the preservationist did not like the color, Why?it's obvious that they were working for the investors of the preservation project.Who were they? Universal and some other wealthy investors who wanted there returns immediately, probably.by focusing only on the casual fan fo classic films, rather than them and us fans of film history, cause we demand accuracy.Money was being put first before history.This is a shame.Nevertheless the less the way the trailer looked was that not all color was changed to look modern.Remember even gone with the wind was enhanced, The original print has softer pastels.King of jazz has it's mono track, since they use one track for everything, in the beginning of sound and talking films.Still, the preservationist should have removed scratches only let it looked in that pristine two color technicolor 35mm print.If you have seen the frames this is the way it looks and was meant to be seen in 1930.The preservationist obviously made a compromise.It isn't that bad as the way d.r. x and mystery of the wax museum and the color sequence in Ben Hur and more recent Whoopee.If Time Warner ever releases Viennese nights or Under a Texas moon to Mamba, if that films are ever restored, or the upgrade version of Mysterious Island, they could give those films a 3 color treatment unless they changed their mind.Mammy color sequence is not enhnaced.I'm guessing there could have been a copyright against the change.That was a blessing. if I'm right.Since King of jazz looked that it was barely touched, it's still worth buying in March or April.I don't think t.c.m. will premiere it yet.Any how it is a lot better than the VHS version.

  3. To day on you tube David Stohmair demonstrated the restoration of Holiday in Spain.The extra footage that was part of Scent of mystery is lost forever except for some footage.He restored the film on time.Using faded 70mm negatives and prints .He's a good restorer.It could be out 2015.Well, there is another cinerama classic that needs to be restore ,The Wide world of Briothers grim.Time Warner claims tha the negative are water dmamged,but I hear rumors tha the damage is not all bad and can be fixed.If Warner don;t restore it ,it could be lost for good .With the help of dave Stohaimer it could be perfect again with a smile box on it and curtains .Time Warner has a letter address in New yorjk city Time Warner Inc. One Time Warner Center New York, NY 10019-8016 212-484-8000 .If you agree with me then this classic needs ot be restored then you need to wrtie to them to pressure them. Change .org, some one had a petition to be sent to time warner to get them to restore it ,They need to restore it before it's too late
