If you’ve never seen some of the great Technicolor film classics on a big screen, you might want to consider paying a visit to the Berlin Film Festival in February. The festival, known as the Berlinale, announced on Tuesday that it plans to screen a raft of Technicolor classics to mark the 100th anniversary of color cinematography. Among the 30 Technicolor films to be screened are Gone with the Wind, Singin’ in the Rain, The Wizard of Oz, Duel in the Sun, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. In a statement, Berlinale Director Dieter Kosslick said, "The Technicolor process combined with cultural and economic trends to produce great cinematic works of art that still thrill audiences today." The announcement did not indicate whether digital or film prints will be used during the retrospective. However, it did observe that it will go on tour later in the year, with plans to screen the films at New York’s Museum of Modern Art in April.
