I hadn't realised that this was restored at Ritrovata.
Does anyone know, maybe MichaelB, how did it escape the Ritrovata teal and yellow fate?
Has something changed?

This looked gorgeous!

There are several releases that've proved it's possible to colour time out their particular tendencies; I guess most labels just don't bother.

Do you mean that Arrow did a further color correction?

They might have not been left alone to do the color grading.

I think maybe their Blood & Black Lace was one title, but I was actually referring to releases from Camera Obscura (Amuck!, I think?) and Mondo Macabro (Lizard in a Woman's Skin?). If I remember right, CO's released at least one more (or are going to? Maybe it's The Bloodstained Butterfly?), where they've done further colour (re)correction to bring the film back to its correct colour scheme. I remember they stated not so long ago that one of thesr titles was the last that they weren't going to grade in-house due to the amount of time & effort they'd had to go to.

I'm only going from memory, so I may have some of these titles mixed up. It's likely the same occurred with Erik the Conquerer, or as tenia said, Arrow were more directly involved.

Subkultur definitely color corrected Wake Up & Kill, for what looks like more convincing results.
I don't think Lizard was color corrected, or at least, the French and US release are basically identical in this regard.
As for Arrow, Deep Red was color corrected post restoration.
