Clarifying the "Colourization" Issue
B. Garrett Meadows | 09/19/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It should be pointed out that many TV shows were filmed in colour, but broadcast in black and white. Such is the case with "An Evening With Nat King Cole."

This program was NOT colourized after the fact, such as Ted Turner did to many black and white films.

Yes, at the end of the program, there is a credit listed for colourization, but that has to do with the technical aspect of filming in colour. All colour films, especially those done in Technicolor, had colour specialists whose jobs included lighting,juxtapositioning of coloured clothing, furniture, sets, etc. Also, make-up had to be carefully adjusted so as to register on the screen as natural.

"An Evening With Nat King Cole" was filmed using a colour process that yielded extremely vivid and sharp colours, e.g. the old TV show Bonanza. So don't be dissuaded from purchasing this exemplary TV show if you think it was "colourized.""
ALL Nat's TV Shows Are Treasures That MUST Be Put on DVDs!

"Every Nat King Cole fan is an impatient customer-in-waiting for the greatest Nat treasure trove of them all: ALL his TV Show episodes, complete from start to finish. Most if not all Nat fans would buy the complete season, sight unseen, as a signature boxed set. Do you hear that, record/DVD label rights owners/licensees/licensors? The time to act is now. We're presuming, of course, but we think you can put our cash to good use, can you not? Do it now and be ecstatic that you did!"

"This is a real personable view of Nat. I feel as though I've met him after viewing this. The sound quality is not what one would expect. A pity. It would seem that the band/ orch. got the good mikes. It seems like they used a directional one in hopes of better capturing his velvet voice, but failed. So much was lost. The mixing is another possible problem. But please don't let this stop you from getting this. I play it a lot. There will never be another Nat."
