Thanks for the link. It's funny seeing Bruce Cabot as Magua. He played Jack Driscoll, the first mate in the original King Kong (1933). He also tried out for the lead in Stagecoach, but John Wayne got it. He later co-starred with Wayne in Angel and the Badman, and they became friends. He had parts in several of Wayne's movies after that.

I've seen King Kong many times, one of my favorite movies. Another thing I noticed is this version of LotM used the same music in the action scenes that they used in King Kong.

I bought a "colorized" version of this one a few years back on e-bay. Its the same movie as the B&W, but they added color to it somehow. Anyone familiar with this process?

Colorized movies didn't look very good back in the '80s, when it became real popular (probably due to the boom in VCR sales), because everything was in shades of pink and blue. They do a much better job of it today. I picked up a DVD of Night of the Living Dead a while back that has both B&W and color versions on it. The color version was done very well, looks like it was filmed that way.

But that's the only colorized film I've seen that I like. For the most part, I prefer my B&W classics to remain B&W. I think most people feel that way because the popluarity of colorizing has dropped a lot over the last 15 or 20 years.
