5.0 out of 5 stars First Outdoor 3-Strip-Technicolor Feature!, 8 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trail Of The Lonesome Pine [DVD] (DVD)
I can not tell you how amazed and overjoyed I was, when I learned that EUREKA was releasing a restored version of this rarely seen film!!!

"The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine" (1936)was only the second feature to be shot in the then new 3-strip-Technicolor process, the first film being "Becky Sharp" (1935). The colours are rich and vibrant and one can just imagine what a novelty these early Technicolor films must have to cinema-goers of the 1930s.
"The Trail Of The Lonesome Pine" is a landmark film, since it was the first Technicolor film to be shot entirely on location.
The film's story deals with the feud between two neighbouring families, and features some well-known actors like Henry Fonda and Sylvia Sidney. However, the best performances are given by Fred McMurray (Disney's "Absentminded Professor") and Nigel Bruce (best known as Dr. Watson to Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes). It's a very watchable film, featuring some of the most beautiful early colour cinematography.

If you enjoy these early Technicolor films as much as I do, take a look at the following titles which are also available on DVD:
"The Garden of Allah" (1936/Marlene Dietrich), "The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer" (1938), "A Star is Born" (1937), "Nothing Sacret" (1937), "The Divorce Of Lady X" (UK/1938), "The Drum" (UK/1938), "Sixty Glorious Years" (UK/1938), "The Mikado" (UK/1939), and especially the double-DVD-Special-Edition of "The Adventures of Robin Hood" (1938).
