HDTV: Technicolor redux?

Back in the 1930s, many top actresses were reluctant to appear in the first Technicolor movies.

"...[C]olor goes a little screwy at times and I'm not just sure I want to make a Technicolor picture," said Carole Lombard. Bette Davis declined to appear in Warner Bros.' first movie using the three-strip Technicolor process.

Now, actresses like Vanessa Williams and Blythe Danner seem to feel the same way about appearing on HDTV sets.
