The Thin Blue Line: A Radical Classic By Charles Musser
Inside the Pink Stable By Chuck Stephens
You’ve never seen a home video presentation of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp that looks as wonderful as the one on our new special edition, out this week on DVD and Blu-ray. This is the Film Foundation’s acclaimed 2011 digital restoration, a major and arduous undertaking, as foundation director Martin Scorsese reveals in this short video. In telling the story of how Blimp was brought back to its original glory, Scorsese also provides an excellent primer on the three-strip Technicolor process.
