Fighting Man of the Plains (1949) Color?

I'm watching this movie on a color tv. The opening credits said 'Color by Cinecolor'. So far, everything has been black & white. The TCM database lists this as a color film (Cinecolor). I know Cinecolor is a subtractive process but...

 

Is this film actually a color production?

It was made in Cinecolor, but apparently the prints are MIA. But there's hope, for years, the Scott film THE CARIBOO TRAIL was only available in black and white, and then a few years ago, TCM did manage to locate a Cinecolor print.

Cinecolor was never considered a very good process and was often used by the smaller studios and independent producers because it was cheaper than Technicolor, but the prints simply didn't hold up. If black & white prints hadn't been made for television in its pre-color days some of those films not exist at all today.
