Not much plot, but oh, the colors!
24 June 2005 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I would never recommend this short on plot, but it is a not to be missed item when it comes to color. This film must be one of the earliest uses of Technicolor around and they use it beautifully. The images are crisp, clear and almost jump off the screen. The scenes of Peggy, the flower girl, and Bobby, the jockey, are gorgeous. The only film of this era that had colors as well executed was, in my opinion "The Adventuresof Robin Hood" two years later. It's only 16 min. long and worth every minute of it. The cinematographer, William V. Skall, was later nominated for eight Academy Awards (four in a row 1940-43) and won for "Joan of Arc" (1943).
