It's a Wonderful Life is not color,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Classic Christmas Collection (It's a Wonderful Life / White Christmas) (DVD)
Just so no one else buys this and thinks they are getting a color version of this movie. It's in Black and white. In the descripion on Amazon it says it is in color. The color version is only on VHS.

Thank goodness it's not in color! It's a B&W film and I'd hate it if it were 'colorized'. White Christmas should be in color; perhaps that's what they meant!?

You can get the new DVD that has both the B/W and colorized version, but it doesn't come with White Christmas.

I totally agree Smary. Though I can see how the description is deceiving. Thanks for the heads up S. Goldschmidt.

Couldn't agree more. THe classics are supposed to be viewed in black and white. It adds to the mystique.

White Christmas (1954) was the first movie to be filmed in the new VistaVision process (COLOR and WIDESCREEN! After 7 years they stopped shooting in VistaVision b/c it was not profitable).
It's A Wonderful Life (1946), of course, was filmed in B&W. The disc we are discussing was released on October 31, 2006.
FYI, "On November 13, 2007, Paramount released a two-disc "special edition" DVD of the film that contained both the original theatrical black-and-white version, newly restored, and a new, ...colorized version, produced by Legend Films using the latest colorization technology."

It's A Wonderful Life is a B&W film, and should be seen in black and white. I never understood why someone would go in and arbitrarily slap colors on someone else's art...would you like to buy a Mona Lisa in a pink halter top?
