It seems to me that I heard or read that this was the first color movie ever. It seems improbable that it is the first as The Adventures of Robin Hood with Erroll Flynn came out this same year and the color in it is remarkable! Anybody know whether it is the first color movie that was made? I recorded this movie from a television broadcast years ago. The station showed the original color version which was dreadful. The characters could hardly be recognized. The colors smeared into mostly pastels of pink, yellow, and green. Then the station later broadcast an enhanced version, which I also recorded. I think I still have both copies although today they would be very old VHS tapes.
I guess I'll have to drag them out to see if they are worth watching again.
