Chasing Rainbows (1930) Poster

Trivia

In its original format, the film contained 1249 feet of 2-strip Technicolor footage which, unfortunately, is either lost or unavailable at the present time; this unhappily includes the "Everybody Tap" number at the beginning of Reel #5, and the "Happy Days Are Here Again" finale in Reel #11.

As shown on TCM, the film ends abruptly with no warning that it's over when Carlie pushes Terry out of the dressing room door. This is the result of the loss of the 2-strip Technicolor finale which ended the film.

In the story, which was filmed in mid-1929, before the stock market crash, the song "Happy Days Are Here Again" is used as a celebration of the end of World War l, in November 1918, but in the 1930s it became such a depression themed anthem, its roots & original purpose were forgotten.
