A thing from a distant past..
27 December 2003 | by See all my reviews

"Ramona" seems as far as a fairy tale ;the splendor of the technicolor and Loretta Young's luminous beauty add to its obsolete charms.The screenplay is melodramatic with an over possessive mother character that should have been more developed. Indians,particularly the male lead ,doesnot seem very authentic ,but who cares?Aunt Ri is a colorful character who resembles the old lady(Edna May Oliver) who takes in Fonda and Colbert in John Ford's "drums along the Mohawks trail" .She steals the show with her crude thinking: "they are not heathen people ,therefore they are nice people",and she prevents the final from completely falling into the mushy trap.The very end is rather implausible and was probably added to secure a -relatively- happy end.

What really amazing is how the quality of the colors has successfully resisted to the passing of time.
