Q: Was the 1955 nature short Emperor Penguins by Mario Marret filmed in Technicolor or black-and-white? There is very little information on this film available even on IMDB. I was seven in Palm Springs in 1955 and remember this film as the co-feature with The African Lion. My memory of it is that it was in black-and-white but perhaps I'm only remembering the coloring of the penguins themselves? Hopefully the Archives has this information as I've discovered it was planned for the True-Life Adventures dvd sets but it didn't happen. Thanks, Jim
