Re: "The Cage" Original Version

i wish there was someone out there with enough digital tools to recreate the original version, but I doubt that, since there's no one I know has successfully colorized black and white footage.
The main problem with that is that there is no original version. There's the pieced-together job for the first VHS release, which was already altered by being used in "The Menagerie," and there's the aired TV version from 1988. Then there's the version Gene Roddenberry showed at speaking events or whatever which I've heard was different from both versions.
