I was checking out some auctions when i came across this interesting item.

[URL=http://http://www.ebay.com/itm/16mm-Film-Hunchback-Notre-Dame-TINTED-Lon-Chaney-1923-B-W-silent-/330637123493?_trksid=p4340.m1374&_trkparms=algo%3DPI.WATCH%26its%3DC%252BS%26i tu%3DUCC%26otn%3D15%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D4057345875207436295#ht_2519wt_855]web page[/URL]

is this process just for aesthetics or does it have a purpose?

I can live without it. I find it pretty distracting. I'm a bit of a purist. I like to see movies the way they were seen when they were originally released which is why I dislike the new versions of the "Star Wars" movies from the 70s/80s. I'm a believer in don't fix what isn't broken.

That looks aweful. I wouldn't pay 10.00 for it. A good print ruined. [Frown]

apparently a few people put a high value on oddly tinted library prints. [Confused]
