One of over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its initial television broadcast took place in Chicago Tuesday 3 February 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. It was released on DVD 9 December 2014 as part of the Universal Vault Series.

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.
