Color sequence?


I read in The Psychotronic Encyclopedia of Film that this film originaly had a color sequence inserted. Does anyone have any info to back up this claim? Or simply an error?

reply

I believe it's an error, as I saw the movie as a 10-year old in its inital release. I went because I'd fallen for Vincent Price in 3D House of Wax and this film was also in 3D. If you can ever see a 3D version jump at the chance. The effects are very good.

I know of 2 movies from the 50s that were black and white but had 'color' sequences in them. The Tingler, in which the blood is red, and then supposedly, the 50's Jack the Ripper movie had a scene where the Ripper is being smashed to death by the elevator, and his blood (red) pools up through the floor, supposedly, but the version that airs on TV shows no blood whatsoever.

"War of the Colossal Beast" (1958) also include a color scene at the very end.

Two other films from the 50's I know had color sequences, RETURN OF DRACULA and I WAS A TEENAGE FRANKENSTEIN.

I don't know about IWATF, but, How to Make a Monster, also from AIP, had a GREAT 7 minute color sequence at the end. It's a dark B&W scene, when Pete, (Robert Harris), goes to light a candle. As the candle flame begins to glow and grow, the scene morphs into beautiful color.

Another title with a color sequence was The Solid Gold Cadillac.

I remember BUCKET OF BLOOD-late '50's or 1960, having the blood in the bucket in red, within the b&w movie> Am I correct?

reply

I don't think that A BUCKET OF BLOOD has a color sequence.
