While listening to the George Klein radio show last night, he mentioned that somewhere in a vault in LA there is a color version of King Creole. If that is true (I for one hope it is), I think it would be great if that version was released on DVD for all the fans.

The only colourised movie is Jailhouse Rock.

If there is a colour version of Creole, it is possibly unofficial.

And it can STAY in the vaults.

NO black and white movie should be colourised!

You don't tamper with art, even if it's just a movie.

no, they wouldn't have shot it in both colour and B&W

at the time, colour was used mostly for musicals and comedies

B&W was still the standard for drama and serious films

King Creole was directed by the same man who directed Casablanca

B&W films have a lot more technical skill in them and should never be colorized

Jailhouse Rock was not the only Elvis movie that was colorized. Love Me Tender was also colorized. I have them both on dvd. If it is true that King Creole was also colorized, I would love to get hold of it. Anyone know where I can get it? I would be eternal grateful for any info on where to get the colorized version of King Creole
