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 »

Where did Ramona go?
11 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is an oldie but goodie. I can't locate a copy anywhere, which may be understandable. I have to find it, becausewant my wife to see it.

When I last saw it, black and white TV was the norm; so it's dated. Came to find out it was in Technicolor all the time! I'd read the famous novel as young and innocent teen, soon to be ravished by Loretta Young. (Listen; NOBODY was more beautiful than Loretta Young.) She was a fine Hollywood actress. The story of Ramona is a frontier tragedy, but nevertheless lovely. Loretta acted her part not only sweetly. She was really perfect as Ramona. None of the settings were extraordinary; just adequate.

The plot is a little too mushy. Yet it's very romantic; you can't help being swept up in it, owing to both Loretta and young Don Ameche, at the peak of his stardom. He was what we'd call a hunk these days; with uncommon screen presence. Ameche could act; I don't think I ever saw him do any part poorly. Why hasn't this 1936 classic been re-mastered and saved on DVD? I'll keep on looking for a video. I'd rate "Ramona" easily a 6. --Ciao, movie fans!
