Breathtaking gorgeous early Technicolor
1 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The most amazing thing about this entertaining little short is the fantastic condition that it has survived in for the past 77 years. Not only does it feature color that is perfect, but the clarity and cleanliness of the print are extraordinary. This film looks like it was shot last week instead of decades ago. The slender storyline has Adam and Eve wandering through the ages and there are a few good lines and some pretty good musical numbers interpolated. This film was probably made as an experiment to test the then-new three color Technicolor which is seen to beautiful advantage. There are costumes of every color, interior shots, exterior shots, and just for good measure, A gorgeous beach shot. Simply breathtaking.
