Henry Jenkins makes a good point about Turner Broadcasting. They realize
full well the value of their archival prints and, unlike their studio
predecessors, they make serious efforts to restore and preserve. I
hasten to add that I'm no fan of that abomination known as colorization,
but fair is fair. Every time I get really riled about colorization, I
think of the superb restoration and re-release of CITIZEN KANE. My
understanding is that the negative decayed because of neglect and the
restoration was from a fine-grain lavender protection print that was found.
