It is not. There was good quality color film in the times of WW2. It was more rarely used just because it was expensive.

Or do you think "Gone with the wind" was colourized?

Every picture was colourized until the early 1960s, dux, don`t you know?

Up until then colour didn`t exist. After WWII, colour began to fade slowly into the world until the flower power age where it bloomed fully into existence.

Read the book `Colour and how it came to be. The phenomenon.` by Ray Kaleid.

Ask anyone who was around before the 1960s, they`ll tell youit was all black and white and greys.

There was color shot near the end of the war in the pacific, and for the reasons Dux mentions, I've seen it! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

look up Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, he did early colour photos that were so clear that you'd think they were taken in the modern day, but he took them in the 1890s and 1900s. They are a blast from the past. bunch of his pics here (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Sergei_Mikhailovich_Prokudin-Gorskii)

not really war pics, but one of Autrian POWs during WWI

Here's a movie that was made only a few years ago to illustrate how life existed before the 1960's and the Miracle of Color. (that's "colour", for the British folk here. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif):

Ray Kaleid also developed the method with which humans view the world.

Kaleidoscope beats Cinemascope, Cinerama, VistaVision, and Panavision hands down for how real life is viewed by humans today.

Humanity owes an eternal debt to Kaleid for bringing color/colour into our lives, although there are some critics that complain that drawbacks came with the phenomenon.

They say that life was much simpler in black and white. All they have to do is point out the film "It's a Wonderful Life" to bolster their argument. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Indeed, Messaschnitzel, it`s good to find someone who has read the book and also seen the docufilm. And even though it was all black and white, many still say it was a far better and `purer` period than before the advent of colour.

Waldo.Pepper... They both seem to be real colored film. But the second film looks like it faded.
