Sorry about that CD King. There are interviews with Jerry Schilling and others in color. Any footage from the movie is in Black & White.

You can say what you want about alot of the things that are offered about Elvis but if you are a real fan and collecter then what does it matter if its in color or not. I have been a collecter for forty years and i will have this in my collecition. As always The King Lives.

I just bought this DVD at Borders today, which is Amazon. The movie is B/W, the extras are in color.

Color? I hope NOT! Would you like a B/W portrait of the Mona Lisa?! Of course not. LMT was filmed in black & white and that's how it should remain. Ditto "Jailhouse Rock" and "King Creole". I certainly don't want stupid computer-colorized versions of these 3 films just as much as I never wanted the "enhanced stereo" masters of mono recordings which were the norm during the 70's. Extra Features, deleted scenes/songs, goofs. Now that is something I would whole-heartedly endorse.

I would imagine this DVD will present the film in it's original B/W format. As for a colour version, there actually never was one, just what they call colourised which is a computer generated effect. I have seen the colourised version of "Love Me Tender" and I thought it looked dreadful. It was a bit like re-inking the Mona Lisa to bring it more up to date.

This is my first post ever here at this site. I also am interested in getting this new SE DVD of Love Me Tender, and preferably in Color. I searched around, and the only site that has it listed as Color is Amazon. FYE, VideoUniverse, Buy.com, Wherehouse, BestBuy, and a few others all have it as Black-n-White. So, doesn't look too good for us in that area, but at least this SE version does have some extras on it. Oh, and sorry for the double posting. I clicked Save before I realized what I was doing. tc.

your right. amazon does claim that it is the 'color' version.

The Amazon site does actually state that this is "Color". Whether or not this is correct or just perhaps refers to the extra documentaries, who knows? If it can be confirmed that this is the colorized version then I want one!

Can someone tell me if this is the much awaited COLOR version?
