Curious about the synopsis for last night's TCM airing of Putney Swope, I sent Shaw this email:

On Friday November 6 at 11PM, TCM aired Putney Swope (1969). Pressing the INFO button on my Shaw remote revealed the following synopsis:

"Robert Downey's satire on Madison Avenue Establishment. Contains color sequences."

That "color" is the US spelling implies the synopsis originated in the US. But when I checked the TCM site, it said:

1. Putney Swope (1969)
Black and White, Color (Eastmancolor)
An unexpected member of the executive board of an advertising firm is accidentally put in charge.
84 mins.

My question is this: Given the film’s thematic content, what does one mean by "color sequences"?
