Hello and welcome Jonas. Hope you enjoy yourself here. Wow - early colour movies 1929-1933. Let us know what you have in your collection.

Have been visiting your site Jonas. Great! At last I have seen some footage from THE GOLD DIGGERS OF BROADWAY (1929). Also enjoyed the bit of technicolor from GLORIFYING THE AMERICAN GIRL - I knew some existed. The restored FOLLOW THRU looks lovely - I only have the unrestored film.

YAY ... Lotsa stuff I've never seen before ... Thanks so much ...
Lillian Roth singing (and dancing in tophat) to "Low Down" from "Madam Satan". This proves to me again that Lillian really missed out and could've been a huge star. That's a great little performance ...
And I loved the short Colleen Moore flapper trailor "Why Be Good" ... WoW ...
Great color clips: "The Woman In The Shoe" (what singer ?), the snake-legger, and the boopy ballerina tappers ...
I'll booperaboop with you ...
If you'll booperaboop with me ...
And we'll booperaboop along together ... :rolleyes: ...

Pull up a chair and sit for a while. We are a friendly bunch of movie collectors and we don't bite!!
Hope that you are looking for regular issued color movies and not colorized movies. They really are pretty bad. I have watched some movies from the early thirties that were tinted during the musical shots, and they weren't too bad. But I have seen some attempts at colorization, and they are terrible.

Hiya Jonas, welcome to the board... Can't wait to check out your U-Tube posts on the early colour movies...

Welcome! and thank you for sharing all these great musical numbers. I love Ethel Shutta's "Stetson" from "Whoopee" - amazing to think this is the same lady who 40 years later was belting out "Broadway Baby" on Broadway in "Follies".
David Alp - February 3, 2007 11:42 PM (GMT)
Great you-tube clips... I enjoyed watching them earlier today... Geoff I don't think that clip of Follow Thru was restored? I have the bootleg version that is knocking around and mine looks exactly the same as what was posted on You-Tube, washed out colour, lack of definement and general fuzziness of picture... There is no official video or DVD release of Follow Thru in release at the moment.
Geoffies - February 4, 2007 12:26 AM (GMT)
David, watch the clip entitled "Two-strip technicolor fragments" and you'll see Zelma O'Neal singing I WANNA BE BAD, beautifully restored. Also contains some technicolor sequences from GLORIFYING THE AMERICAN GIRL.
precoder - February 4, 2007 01:28 AM (GMT)
This youtube thing is just great ...
Also look for one entitled "Over The Counter" (MGM 1932) featuring the "Check Your Husbands" number which I think must've been from "The March Of Time" ...
Brilliant use of early two-strip with really suggestive precode costumes, singing and dancing ... Simply magnificent ...
David Alp - February 4, 2007 01:28 PM (GMT)
Oh Yeah Geoff, I've already got that clip of fragments on DVD-R, recorded off TV on the "Broadway" TV show narrated by Julie Andrews a couple of years ago... Thats a clip of Follow Thru thats obviously taken from the source print...

stjn O1 - you are so very welcome here.
I've been visiting your site for a while. I want to say thank you
for all those wonderful clips. I couldn't believe it - clips I'd only
dreamed of seeing - to actually see them.
Jeanette MacDonald singing "Beyond the Blue Horizon",
Bernice Claire looking gorgeous and that wonderful clip from
"Broadway" takes my breath away.

Hi again Jonas.
I went into your site today to play the clips from GOLD DIGGERS OF BROADWAY again and see they have disappeared?
