I find that the contrast of a colorized film seen in black and white is greatly reduced. I recall seeing TOPPER  (a film where I've had the good fortune to have seen the Museum of Modern Art's print), and I really noticed how there was a generalized "neutral gray" of the colorized version. That's one of Turner's first efforts, and perhaps they've improved -- but I still don't understand anything but monentary reasons why a film should be colorized.
