What DVD/Blu has a good documentary on 3 strip Technicolor

Anyone?

Does Adventures of Robin Hood or Gone With the Wind or something have a good doc about how the camera worked?

The Criterion of The Thief of Bagdad has something on it, at least in terms of special effects with three strip technicolor.

The Blu-ray of THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD offers this feature:
"Glorious Technicolor: Celebrating the revered color filmmaking process"

It's probably on the DVD as well.

Nothing like that listed on the GWTW DVD I have, nor in Amazon's listing for the Blu-ray.

I believe Singing in the Rain has a feature on Technicolor as well, but I may be misremembering.

It's been years since I watched it, but I remember the documentary on Robin Hood being really entertaining and thorough

Black Narcissus has a great documentary called "Painting with Light" that focuses specifically on cinematographer Jack Cardiff and the use of Technicolor on Black Narcissus.

edit: It's on YouTube
