Is there a colourised version?


Hi!
Does anyone know if there is a colourised version of this available (VHS or DVD)?

That would be a great sin.

I seriously hope there is not a colourised version of this movie, it's one of my favourites and I've yet to see a colourised movie that is worth watching in anything other than it's original black & white.

Nothing's wrong with black and white, but a friend of mine, who's a Pimpernel completist, thought she'd heard there was a colourised version and was curious about tracking it down if it existed.

The nerve of you all to say that you hope that colorized versions do not exist. The person was asking because he/she wanted to see it; if you had not, then do not watch it. To the original poster, no, I do not think that there is one in existence.

There is, in fact, a colourized version in existence, and it is edited slightly differently as well. I have it on an old VHS tape that I taped off a late show during the 1980s, and keep planning to transfer it to DVD, since it was one of my best loved films as a young girl. It doesn't lose anything by being coloured, in my opinion, I own a black and white DVD version as well, since I don't want to wear out my VHS.

The first time I saw this on tv in the '80s, it was colorized and it was rather garish. We recorded it, but I don't think our tv recording exists anymore.
