A little restoration test, itself based on tests – in this case, from the preparations for a feature film. The results showed that the extremely faded colours of the source material could be reconstituted almost entirely in the scanning phase alone. The film, for which Elizabeth Taylor posed in these make-up tests, was shot in Vienna.

Restored in 2K from 35mm acetate positive print material
