Ive never seen “Gone With The Wind” and I honestly dont intend to unless I am forced by my fiance, which at some point will most likely happen. Nothing that some whiskey cant make more entertaining though. Nothing against the picture, just not into romantic films.

 This picture is from the 12th Acadamy awards where apparently the cast won damn near every award. At first I thought that was Clark Gable on the lower left, turns out its actually Douglas Fairbanks Jr. Did every actor have a pencil thin mustache then?

Vivian Leigh is extremely photogenic in this picture and was by far the easiest to color as well as the most fun. 

I’m not sure who the guy on the top right is but he looks looks like he is drunk or having a blast (probably both) and looks like he could be Tobey Maguire’s grandfather. Olivia Havilland was the easiest one to colorize in this image, she looks happy and energetic and purple suited her well. 
There was a lot of small background intricacies on this one too. matchbook, ashtray, wine bucket, wallpaper, painting and other things that became really time consuming with this picture.

I will be posting a few more old Hollywood Acadamy Awards Photos this month up until the premiere. Please feel free to leave any comments, suggestions or criticisms below in the comment sections.

The full images are below and feel free to give it a try and leave your own colorization below or share this post on your social media network

ALSO I will be posting a new tutorial on skin-tones this week and cleaning up the other ones. I will also be posting video tutorials very soon.
