Good early Technicolor wasted on weak musical comedy short...
11 June 2009 | by DoylenfSee all my reviews

Warner Bros. must have been gearing up for producing their first full-length feature in Technicolor when they made this experimental short starring LEON ERROL as Adam and JUNE MacCLOY as Eve, both wearing abbreviated costumes covered with leaves. The only real asset is the Technicolor which looks fine.

Story has the two of them dreaming about frolicking through the centuries with various famous people--beginning in Nero's garden in Ancient Rome, King Arthur's court, and ending in the 19th Century at the beach where a bevy of bathing beauties do a routine dance number at the beach. Says Adam: "It's a nice century you have here." That's a good sample of the wit.

All of the gags are lame, full of flat one-liners, and the musical interludes are downright dumb. MAXINE DOYLE sings a forgettable tune in a very thin voice that the soundtrack makes sound even tinnier.

The big surprise is that this was 1934, a few years before Warners made THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, their most acclaimed Technicolor feature at that time. The color photography looks fine but the short is weak on wit and the cast fumbles through some bad material.
