Trivia

While this was the third feature film released in 3-strip Technicolor, it does not seem to survive in that form. Only incomplete 35mm negatives are known to exist, plus 16mm prints made in the 2-color Cinecolor process. See more »

Funny Frank Morgan and Unknown Charles Collins
22 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got this out of the 50 musicals set. It said it was in Technicolor but it the print was curiously in black and white. The Plot-a dancing master gets kidnapped to be a galley worker on a pirate boat. He ends up in Calfornia near Monterey which at that time was populated with Mexicans. At first they arrest him, but he charms the whole town. This was an entertaining little musical. Not perfect and not a classic but definitely worth a look for Charles Collins and Frank Morgan.

It had a lead I have never heard of... Charles Collins who was quite a talented dancer-singer-actor . He kind of looks like Kevin Kline. Amazed the man didn't have a more illustrious career as he had all the makings of what constituted a star back then. Quite an interesting discovery. Frank Morgan (the wizard of oz) is quite funny as the bumbling mayor. The film was quite enjoyable.
