I haven't seen that. My favorite baseball comedy is "Rhubarb." It's about a cat that inherits a baseball team. There's also a little-known comedy called "Kill the Umpire."

Crazy ... NOT! I don't like "Miracle on 34th Street" in color, and I can't STAND "It's a Wonderful Life" or Alastair Sim's "Scrooge" in color.

But there are a few films that actually benefit from colorization. Have you seen either of the colorized versions of "Babes in Toyland" (aka "March of the Wooden Soldiers")? Hal Roach wanted to make that in color, but didn't have the budget.
