Good Morning, Eve! (1934)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This Warner short is best known for being the second three-strip Technicolor film in history. It has Adam (Leon Errol) and Eve (June MacCloy) eating the forbidden apple and then taking a walk through history where they do a dance and music number with Nero in Rome and King Arthur in England. The main reason to watch this movie is for its beautiful Technicolor, which looks downright amazing. Just take a look at all the leaves covering Adam and Eve's bodies as the green nature of them just leaps off the screen and punches the viewer in the eyes. The colors are so extremely well here that I'd say this might be the best looking color film of the decade. The music numbers are fairly good and overall the film is charming but another big key is the pre-code elements. Seeing Eve in her fig leaves hardly covering any of her body certainly stands out. The mechanical snake in the garden was pretty funny as well.
