By the looks of them, you most likely can add Hotel des Amériques and La Baule-les-Pins to the Ritrovata color stamped list.
It turned out La Baule-les-Pins actually is Hiventy.

Studio Canal's Cartouche (1962) was "restored" in 4K by Ritrovata. Just released stateside by Kino.

Beaver's reviewer says: "The only curiosity is that the film does have an almost golden brown and green/teal tint to the visuals. This could very well be intentional though or a function of being ritrovata'ed, but I didn't find it distracting."

It's definitely Ritrovata'd. Studio Canal used this restoration for their november 2019 Blu-ray.

The Eclair restoration of Debord's Hurlements en faveur de Sade has popped up online and it's probably the most absurd example of this phenomenon to date. The film's visuals consist entirely of alternating black and white leader, and this is how the whites look:

In their defense, they appear to have nailed the blacks.
