Several years ago, Ted Turner began "colorizing" classic films. This never struck me as a particularly big deal, but now I realize the issue. Directors of the time understood that their technology was limited to black and white, and filmed to account for, and take advantage of, the lack of color. The colorized version is probably not true colors, because the sets and costumes would have had colors that would look better when translated to black and white.
