I'd agree on the "monochrome" British films, and "Sand Pebbles" and "Mr Roberts". Anybody ever seen "Away All Boats", "Sailor of the King" or the Gregory Peck version of "Captain Horatio Hornblower".

'Sailor of the King' has been screened a few times on Channel 4 (in the UK), bizarrely in the original preview version with two different endings and a reminder to vote in the lobby on which one you preferred!
