Here's how they ended in Berlin in 1936

Thanks that was utterly fascinating.

The black and white images are astonishing. I know folks who will not watch old movies that are not in color. To me, something excellent was lost in the routine use of color, for the best of the cinematography in the old black and white movies is unmatched in color films. I think especially of the images by the best directors in the noirish genre.

I can't imagine this movie "colorized."
