This film short came up on my DVD with Me and My Gal. This film is about Santa Barbara and their annual festival. It's an all star cast but you wouldn't know it because there are just so many people and not enough time to get to all of them. The music was average. The fiesta part was really to show Santa Barbara and the annual tradition to the world out there in color. I was surprised to see it on the DVD. While you get only a glimpse of the major stars, you do try to find out what is going on. There doesn't seem to be a story or a purpose to it. The colors are great because it's in color and not black and white. Maybe TCM would air this short in between longer movies. But I just didn't get it what it was all about. Maybe I wasn't paying enough attention to it.
