One of over 700 Paramount productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. This film's earliest documented telecast took place in Seattle Friday 20 February 1959 on KIRO (Channel 7); it later aired in Omaha 25 September 1959 on KETV (Channel 7), in Columbus 23 January 1960 on WBNS (Channel 10), in Pittsburgh 1 February 1960 on KDKA (Channel 2), in Johnstown 7 May 1960 on WJAC (Channel 6), in Detroit 28 July 1960 on WJBK (Channel 2), in San Francisco 6 August 1960 on KPIX (Channel 5), in Cincinnati 7 October 1960 on WKRC (Channel 12), and in Minneapolis 20 October 1960 on WTCN (Channel 11). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. Viewers were not offered the opportunity to see these films in their original Technicolor until several years later. See more »
I am working from a very vague and indistinct childhood memory of a film which I think is Rainbow Island, but cannot be certain. My most vivid memory of this film, which I recall as being in technicolor and having a large number of native-type people in it, is of a kind of idol which was worshipped by the natives and had a curious expression on its face - the most distinct feature being an underlip that stuck out. If I recall the scene correctly, the natives never looked at this idol, believing that it caused death. Eddie Bracken (if it was he), not knowing of this custom looked at the idol and found himself assuming the same expression of face, complete with protruding underlip. On seeing this, the natives began to worship him instead of the idol. Was I watching Rainbow Island? Or was it a different film altogether? Does anyone know?
