All the Pacific stuff with Burt Lancaster is in colour and so is Ben Hur. So was "Jesus of Nazareth". They are all documentaries, so there must have been colour during WW11.

IIRC "Gone with the wind" was the first commercial colour film & that was released in 1939, so colour was definitely around during the war. There was a series on telly not so long ago "WW2 in colour" or something similar, most of it was German archive film, seeing Hitler in colour at the Nuremburg rallies was eerie, it made it "real". I see what Willk is getting at, we have a B&W view of the war which somehow detaches us from it & acts as a buffer. Seeing it in colour, brings it into the present & makes it real. We now have live 24/7 HD 3D glorious technicolour view of conflicts & we are de-sensitised to it, seeing WW2 in colour for the first time is a jolt to the system.

Phew! that's my philosophical bit done for the day, back to taking the piss, I thought to qualify as a documentary the subject matter had to exist

Ben Hur however is a different story, and that was filmed nearly two thousand years ago!
