I'm looking for a colorized DVD. I've got the colorized version on VHS that I taped off the TV. It's pretty old and not perfect. Hopefully they'll come out with a DVD that has both B&W and Colorized versions on it.

Why? Then it won't be Casablanca. Are you Ted Turner trying to buy up his old mistakes? You are now, aren't you? Come on, 'fess up.

They chose to shoot this movie in black and white. Gone with the Wind was released a few years before this movie, so the process was available.

But let's assume that they would have shot this movie in color if they'd had the budget. The thing is, they didn't, so they not only shot it in black and white, but they shot it knowing that the results would be black and white. The sets, lighting, camera angles, and so on were all developed with a black and white result in mind. If they'd shot it in color, they'd have shot the movie differently. It would be a different movie.

If an artist does a drawing in charcoal, you can't just add colors to see what the artist would have done with oil paints. The medium influences the art from the beginning.

What is it that you like better about the colorized version? I'm curious, because you aren't the only one. There must be something about added color that people like, in the same way that people prefer cropped "full screen" movies to seeing the whole thing. Does the color make it easier for you to watch? Are you distracted by the lack of color?

I prefer to see movies the way they were made, without changes or editing, but I can only speak for myself. I am sincerely interested in why you (or anyone else) feels adding color enhances movies.

When i wake in the morning i look out the window and see blue sky trees of many shades of green this makes me feel good,Imagine waking up to a black and white world.
Now my final unbiased comment when i was taken to the movies as a young child (i am now 70) i can remember most people around us becoming excited if the movie was in color even if that movie was B grade.I agree with what you say that they were produced for B&W lighting et'c.
Have you seen the 1935 coloization of SHE.you can choose to view Color or B&W and with the new tecniques available today most of the shade/ lighting effects can be modified,to me seeing a colorized old movie is a new experience.

Dieter Huber says:
Most colorizing (on wb & mgm movies) was done by Ted Turner in the late 80's. Some were released on VHS while many were shown on his TV stations. When Warner Brothers took over the library they stopped the process & withdrew all colorized titles from release. They made a press release at that time that they had no further plans to colorize or release any of their movies, many of which, i'm guessing, have been destroyed. So i'm guessing that if you do find a colorized copy of Casablanca, it will likely be from a VHS recorded off TV 20 years ago and transfered over to DVD.

I saw part of the Colorized version on TCM pay channel in Sydney around 10 years ago.I was not aware that it was to be shown.
I then checked for the next 4 weeks for a repeat showing so that i could record it but as far as i know this never hapened,

really he says:
I saw the movie the first time when I was12 it was great, since then I have seen it 41 times and it is still great it is a great peanut butter sandwich, the color is the jelly it helps make it a little easier to see and sweetens the taste.

Well, "buddy", I do "think about the times we live in": a time when people on the Internet don't think twice about insulting strangers in a way that no decent person would have considered twenty years ago.

In a way, though, that's a good thing: it allows us to more readily tell what a person is really like.

Dude, I am too. I saw it when it was originally broadcast on Turner cable. It was great. I had known the black and white version, but I was astounded how fresh this movie became with the addition of color. If you find where I can get a copy, I'd be obliged.
