When thinking of the use of "color" in films the first movie that pops into my head is the 1939 "The Wizard of Oz". I feel as though this film has a lot of good color symbolism and different types of color. The beginning of the film and the end of the film is shown in black and white and the brightness of it is low and saturation is eliminated, this symbolizing Dorothy's boring life in Kansas and making the viewer feel as down as Dorothy does. When she is taken up from the tornado she is taken into Oz and the movie turns into color showcasing Oz as a somewhat "dreamland", allowing the viewer to feel as though they are in a dreamland as well. Throughout the scenes in Oz the saturation of color is higher and color is apparent. The color although, is fairly low definition, except for Dorothy's red slippers and the yellow brick road. You can guess that this is because the creators wanted to showcase the shoes and road's power and importance, making the red shoes and yellow brick road brighter with higher definition. The colored scenes have a high color temperature, seeing as they are outside most of the film and the light looks somewhat bluish.
I feel as though these color types are different when looking at the original version of the movie, and the new HD version. The colors are more apparent when you watch the HD films. I chose a clip from the original movie and I chose the scene when Dorothy says the famous, "there's no place like home," clicks her slippers together and leaves her color dreamland to return to her dull, black and white world.
