Trivia

Originally the part of Ramona was going to go to Rita Hayworth (under her original name, Rita Cansino). But when Darryl F. Zanuck became the head of 20th Century, he said Hayworth was too young for the role, and he gave it to Loretta Young. See more »

Ramona come closer, shut softly your watery eyes
27 August 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Spanish Loretta Young (!) was raised by a wealthy family. The family's son loves Loretta but she loves Indian Don Ameche (oh boy). Then she finds out that she's also half-Indian, which makes her happy as she can marry Ameche. It's one of those movies, folks. When Ameche rides into view and you realize he's gone full Tonto for this picture, you basically have two choices: turn it off or soldier on, knowing full well this is going to be a little hard to swallow.

The early Technicolor is nice and makes the beautiful scenery pop. Young is lovely, even with the jet black hair that doesn't suit her. Speaking of lovely, Katherine DeMille appears in this and her beauty is also enhanced by the color. Good support from Jane Darwell, J. Carrol Naish, and Pauline Frederick. John Carradine has a small part. It's a well-intentioned bit of hokum. Amusing at times but depressing if you take it seriously.
