Romance of Robert Burns, The (1937)

** (out of 4)

Technicolor short from MGM tells the story behind Robert Burns' famous song Auld Lang Syne. It should go without saying that poor Robert wrote the song after a love gone wrong. The film looks terrific and director Wilbur really brings out all he can in the color department but the story is just was too over dramatic. The love story becomes quite laughable after a while. Owen King plays Burns.

You can usually catch this on Turner Classic Movies as part of their Oscar month or Festival of Shorts series.
