Two Strip Color
17 April 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In antebellum New Orleans, two men vie for the affections of a beautiful young girl during Mardi Gras.

Very early sound film with silent film star BeBE Daniels.

Frankly, I really tired of people drinking the kool aid and having to highlight what they described as "racist" imagery of the film. This is 1930 not 2014. Get over it.

Blacula has racist overtones and nobody says a peep.

This is an odd film that somehow mixes the circus with the plantation. And the plantation owner has a Jewish accent. In fact a bunch of the actors have odd accents. Not the typical Hollywood accents of the time.

The film mixes song and drama and comedy.

So is this a good movie? Uh not really. It drags and wheeler and woolsy are not my cup of tea.

However what makes the picture interesting are is the last two reels -- first time use of 2 strip technicolor. Its worth watching for that alone.
