Do you think "A Night to Remember" would look bad if it was colorized?

    Some of the sinking footage from this film was colorized and used in three other Titanic films, SOS Titanic, No Greater Love, and Time Bandits, and it looks cheesy.

    It would also look odd now if the film was edited to show the ship splitting in half while sinking.

    Raising an interesting point. What was the original colour of the engines in Titanic?

  3. If the colours could be rendered accurately, I don't see why it would be a problem.

    Hi Michael,
    The only reason why I ask the colour of the engines, as I see the film SOS is mention. The engine used in the film is from the Kempton Steam Museum which is painted green. Now if the film is in black and white well that doesn't matter. But in colour some sharp eye member may know the original colour and was not of the Titanic engine?
