Over the rainbow
29 September 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Possibly made as a direct result of the sublime RKO fashion musical of 1934 ROBERTA and certainly a direct reason why there was a sensational Technicolor fashion sequence in THE WOMEN, 1939, this absolutely breathtaking Technicolor fashion comedy made in 1937 is an art deco dream come true. A film like this is quite beyond criticism... we should just be grateful it exists to showcase the height of sophisticated design fashion women and comedy in the snazzy 1930s. Joan Bennett is Lucille Ball style gorgeous and Warner Baxter is 42nd st handsome and tough... but the highlight of this superb production is the eye-popping art deco direction and design and the fashions themselves.... how cold anyone complain about this gift from the 30s? Very few modern color 30s films exist... maybe really only NOTHING SACRED or GOLDWYN FOLLIES compare... but this one! wow! truly a sublime confection of modern Manhattan life for the nightclub and fashion set in glorious perfected Technicolor... well no written compliment can do the visuals justice when you see them. There was a huge number of new cinemas built in the mid 30s and many many old theaters were snazzed up into deco design in '37'38'39 so color films like this were used to open them, allowing the cinema and the film to have a gala opening season showing the peak of cinema technical and artistic quality... hence films like this not only served to be a delight of their own time, but they made millions by easily being chosen as the opening film in thousands of cinemas and command a huge rental fee for the privilege... hence making massive return for the producer.... VOGUES OF 1938 is a crystal rainbow of art deco life, made wisely in color in the height of the 30s art deco design boom. See it love it and show it to everyone you know... and like me, say thankyou for those wise clever producers of the mid 30s who have created a breathtaking modern masterpiece as treasured as the many gorgeous cinemas that were subsequently demolished in the 60s and 70s. They do not exist but this lovely smart funny modern film does. A very witty script and a hilarious rollerskating interlude only add to the continual delight. Yippee!
