Rare birds preen for the cameras in this Pete Smith Specialty Short...
27 March 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I suppose bird watchers and members of the Audubon Society will find this short much more fascinating that I did, but it comes across as a rather cut and dry documentary on our fine feathered friends, narrated by Pete Smith.

On display--and accompanied by a few witty comments about their appearances--are a range of birds including: The Red Cardinal, Hummingbirds, Chinese Rice Birds, Golden Pheasant, Manuchurian Pheasants, African Crown Crane, The Barn Owl and The Monkey Faced Owl, among others.

Naturally, all of their color is highlighted by being "photographed in the Technicolor process" according to the credits. It's an odd MGM short that surprised me because I thought the Pete Smith shorts began in the '40s rather than the early '30s. Just goes to show that in the early '30s, the big studios were experimenting with full color before taking the plunge later in the decade for full-length features.
