devil of a color short!
28 May 2002 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

once again the remarkable TCM (the only network consistently worth watching- if i only had one station, this would be it) has discovered a remarkable little gem. this is a very early 1930s color short - real color, not tint, and it's very well done. the music (by dmitri tiomkin) is quite good and the dancing, especially the strip is very lively and fun to watch. Charles Middleton (better known as Ming the Merciless) shows up as Satan. hope you come across this some night on TCM!!!
