BLOOD AND GLORY: THE CIVIL WAR IN COLOR
April 7, 2015  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

History, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
I’m opposed to colorized Honeymooners and I Love Lucy episodes, and to the colorization of classic black and white movies. So why does this project, in which hundreds of black and white Civil War photographs have been painstakingly colorized, intrigue me more than it repels me? On principle, it’s the same messing-with-history offense. But somehow, at least in theory, this is a lot more justifiable – and intriguing. For example, I'm used to seeing Abraham Lincoln either bronze or green -- on a penny or a $5 bill -- but not in several shades at once.

So, it's the day after the premier of "Blood & Glory - The Civil War In Color". Any thoughts? For me, the colorized images ran the gamut from Ted Turner Tacky - to Righteously Realistic. Overall, the best Civil War presentation since Ken Burns.
