16 FATHOMS DEEP (1948)

Unread post by earlytalkiebuffRob » Tue Sep 18, 2018 2:38 pm

Looking out the 1934 film of the same title, I found this remake, in b/w but declaring it was shot in Ansco Color. Does it exist in this format? I know the process had its problems, having only seen THE MAN ON THE EIFFEL TOWER (1949) in b/w or in an awful colour copy which was far worse...

I have a 16mm Anscocolor print. Chaney looks like he is wearing the same suit he wore in ABBOTT & COSTELLO MEET FRANKENSTEIN.

WPIX used to run this in B&W. It was a childhood favorite. Not sure why!!
