“Miss Davis, what do you think of the colorization of films today?” 

“Colorization is breaking the hearts of many of us today. I saw Dark Victory with colorization. All the good taste in clothes, the good taste of the set decorator, are all gone. It just breaks your heart. I don’t know if it will ever be stopped. One could really cry to have the modern generation see a film colorized like Dark Victory. Some films are made only to be in black and white. You can change the whole story, the impact it might have, the scoring of the music might have been different if we knew it was going to be colorized. I think it’s terrible that we have no protection from this. Truly breaks your heart.”

“I call my awards my blood, sweat, and tears. If you are admired enough in your work to receive an award and to be given a lifetime achievement award, it is, of course, a great honor. One never does get over that. Never. I am very grateful and have been very fortunate to have received many during my long years.”
