Interesting for the Behind the Scenes Footage

Behind the Movie Lens (1938)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This is a rather interesting short from MGM that is basically a promotional piece of their film THE BAD MAN OF BRIMSTONE. The film, as you'd expect, really pushes hard for people to build up interest in the film that stars Wallace Beery but what makes this short worth viewing for people today are the behind the scenes footage it contains. We're told that the man who found the locations used in the film also found those in MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY and TRADER HORN. We learn how difficult it is to shoot in places like the Zion National Park as it takes days and sometimes weeks to get lines up for power, food to make sure everyone eats and of course other types of equipment that it takes to make a movie. I thought the footage of all this stuff being brought to the location and set up made this short worth viewing. As a promotional piece it really didn't make me want to search out the film in question but I still found it to be rather interesting and certainly worth watching since it runs under five-minutes.
