Decent MGM Promo

Operation Raintree (1957)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This is a decent promo piece from MGM about the making of their Civil War epic RAINTREE COUNTY. The promo runs just under 6-minutes so there's really not too much detail given except for the fact that the studio went to twelve different states trying to find the perfect location before settling on Danville, KY. The film introduces the cast to us but we're given very little actual footage of them, although there are a few nice shots of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. The one should-have-been interesting piece is at a parade the day before shooting started when Taylor speaks to the crowd but sadly we don't get to hear what she's saying as it's been muted so that the narrator can talk over here. This was a real shame because it would have been interesting to hear what she had to say. Overall, if you're a fan of the film or the cast then you might want to check this out but I'm going to guess that the majority of people will find very little interest in this thing.
