I went to a screening of a I.B. Technicolor print of this film yesterday and surprisingly it was actually quite close to the Blu-ray in terms of colour although it depends on the scene. The blue on the Blu-ray is definitely a tad strong and the highlights now have teal in them but the other colours and the saturation are pretty close to the print. The print was quite warm, especially the bank robbery scene which was darker and warmer on the print than on the Blu-ray, making it seem like it was ocurring in the late afternoon. The night scenes in particular look very close to the print, the daytime exteriors are quite good and the interior scenes are generally the least accurate. The DVD doesn’t look anything at all like the print I saw, it is too bright and the colours are washed out. I would have taken some photos and video but I didn’t find this thread until after the screening. I hope this information helps.
