2019 Releases - Blog2020-03-10
2019 saw twenty-nine releases exclusive to SIXTEENmm.
This list is not everything. For that, you can look here.
Instead, this is an attempt to break down a year's worth of work and entertainment.
Murder Mysteries remain some of our most popular colorisations. Particularly the Margaret Rutherford era of Miss Marple.
Murder, She Said
Murder at the Gallop
Murder Most Foul
Nancy Drew, Reporter
We've supplemented our murder mysteries with some others, including this fun take on Nancy Drew.
Top Hat is one of our only colorised musicals to date, and one of those Astaire & Rogers films that is great for the whole family.
This is not your Tarzan origin story that we've all seen time and time again. It is a colorisation of one of the most popular Tarzan films, however. A girl, destined for a harem, or Tarzan. Tough choice.
What happens when a VIP ends up as a POW? Shenanigans.
One of our focuses was bringing back footage shot for and during World War II. It was not fun bringing so many of these horrific scenes to life. Disappearing entire towns in expanding plumes of fire, seeing the mass graves dedicated for children.
There is good reason we cannot allow ourselves to forget the atrocities of this war.
Great Battle of the Volga
Battle for China
Battle for Britain
Battle for Russia
At one point in time, Hollywood actually acknowledged the damage that they had done to the native people's of America. Ensuring that this film is remembered is nothing less than a civic duty.
We Work Again
In an effort to combat rising racism, the American government comissioned a piece to show the work of minorities during World War II. Bringing this to life shows the tireless efforts of people that still have to fight to be heard today.
I've got a Secret
There was a short period of time where television crossed over with the end of the lives of people who had seen amazing and horrific historical events. This interview, was one of those. Though elderly at the time of the interview, he was a young boy at the theatre when Abraham Lincoln was assassinated.
This is an interesting drama, about the costs and unfairness of homosexuality in London. Somehow, against all public backlash, this film managed to be made in 1961, an era where such an admission would no doubt put you in a worse position than the film's protagonist.
The Great Train Robbery
Restoring this silent film is something of a writ of passage for beginning film makers. It was our honour to make sure that it will continue to survive, in one fashion or another, for the foreseeable future.
The Last Man on Earth
Few black & white horror movies lend themselves towards colorisation. Their techniques can be ruined by taking away the atmosphere. However, in this film about the only man left alive, that haunting atmosphere is only emphasised when it is brought into full colour.
