In 1986, film critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert produced a special episode of Siskel & Ebert addressing colorization as "Hollywood's New Vandalism." "It's about money." Siskel explained how networks were unable to show classic black-and-white films in prime-time unless they offered them in color. "They arrest people who spray subway cars, they lock up people who attack paintings and sculptures in museums, and adding color to black and white films, even if it's only to the tape shown on TV or shown in stores, is vandalism nonetheless."
