B&W Prints were struck for Television. Due to the length of the trailers, its doubtful many were actually used. There were B&W prints struck of Feature Films for small television stations that had not converted over to full color yet.

At one time most film libraries in the UK who hired out features only supplied black & white copies of colour films. This was due to extra charges being made for copies in either Technicolor or Kodachrome. This was before Eastmancolor made colour films slightly cheaper to print. Most black & white copies of colour films, including trailers, shorts and cartoons, carried a black "banner" across the words "Colour by Technicolor."
