Trivia

Originally the part of Ramona was going to go to Rita Hayworth (under her original name, Rita Cansino). But when Darryl F. Zanuck became the head of 20th Century, he said Hayworth was too young for the role, and he gave it to Loretta Young. See more »

Young Technicolor

Ramona (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A young half Indian woman (Loretta Young) marries an Indian (Don Ameche) but their lives take a turn for the worse when white folks run them off their land. This is an extremely depressing and somewhat shocking film that actually shows the Indians as the good people and the white's as savages, which wasn't common back in the day. The two stars do their usual great work but the direction is all over the place. The Indians aren't well written considering most are talking with Spanish accents. John Carradine has a small role. From what I gathered, this was the forth feature to use 3-strip Technicolor.
