I would keep it as having good colour is the best thing. A green scratch for only a minute wouldn't bother me (unless I could easily obtain another print at a good price but would only bother if it was a favourite movie of mine)

If I like the film I will keep it! And as long it has a scratch on the far right side or left side! If it is in the middle I would get rid of it! I just hate those scratches that run down the middle! Very distracting!

One of my films had a lovely scratch in the centre right through the main characters face from the very start of the film. I got Marco to print the section from a dvd and no-one would know there had ever been a problem unless a sharp eyed viewer registers a slight difference in the colour balance. Scratches in the wrong place always distract but rarely destroy the viewing experience. I tend to hang on in hopes of a perfect replacement but as each year passes the hope of copies of favourites being available or even affordable lessens.
