Title: AFOD, FADM, GBU, DYS

Ok this is going way back but it has to do with the colors of the DVD's & the Blu's

I remember back in 1966-67 one review actually did mentioned the golden Mediterranean light. Back then I read reviews from the NY Times, the NY Daily News, The Long Island Star Journal, Time, Newsweek, and a couple of other Film review publications so it had to be one of them. I've been uploading images from a past European trip and that discussion we had and that review again came back to me when I was uploading the images.

There is a more golden hue to the blue sky in the Mediterranean.

Interesting. Are these all from similar times-of-day?

the 1st & 3rd are (you can tell by the angle of the shadows)  number 2 is closer to noon. The others don't have visible shadows.

The last Blu I saw had too blue a sky and too green grass (especially for the Sad Hill sequence)
