Was Cinecolor this ugly back in 1939?
27 November 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This was originally released in 1939 by Monogram Studios. Then, in 1944 it was re-named and released by Warner Brothers--an odd occurrence to see a film re-released by a bigger studio. Apparently the film was actually made by the Cinecolor Company and I assume it was done to show off their color process. However, when I saw the film on Turner Classic Movies, it was ugly as can be--with garish, washed out colors that looked more like Two-Color Technicolor than the improved Three-Color process that was gaining popularity in the late 1930s. Now it is very possible that the print has just degraded over time and needs restoration. If it actually did look like this, then I can see why Cinecolor never became very popular.

The film is set in an old West town. A guy arrives because his girlfriend lives in this tiny town. However, she has made him promise to give up his guns and never wear them around town. As a result, he is seen by some as a coward. However, when the bank is robbed and his friend is shot, he rises to the occasion and proves his manliness.

This film is an odd little short film, as it's like an entire 70 minute western crammed into only 20 minutes. It's not at all bad, but very rushed. Also, the star, Dennis Moore, didn't have a huge amount of charisma. But, it's pleasant enough viewing nevertheless.
