Color Palette: Assault on a Queen

'Color Palette: Assault on a Queen'


Our August theme of the month, High Seas, continues with Assault on a Queen (1966).

This still from Assault on a Queen (1966) sets up a frame so typical of film noir that we almost expect it to be in milky black and white. Instead of shades of grey, we get a full range of nautical browns as the colors of the scene play with our expectations as viewers.
