If you look in the ICG magazine (Dec 2004 - International Cinematographers 
Guild www.cameraguild.com) there's a long article about the Aviator (movie 
by Scorsese) about how they managed to get the Technicolor look. It's a 
very interesting article which is well worth the reading if you can get 
your hands on it. Rob Richardson was the cinematographer and he worked 
together with retired Dr. Dick Goldberg of Technicolor. They used more 
yellow in the magenta dye and less in the cyan dye to get the technicolor 
effect (made in telecine/post).
