Claude in color: definitely worth a watch
30 April 2008 | by (Lake Arrowhead, CA) – See all my reviews

It's too bad Warners didn't deem the material sufficiently interesting to make this into a full-length feature. God knows this short film is superior to much of the forgettable nonsense the studio was churning out at this time.

The only captivating reason to watch this is to see Claude Rains in glorious Technicolor. Let me be the first to tell you, he's looking extremely swoon-worthy. He's sporting a very dapper ponytail, wonderful breeches and the largest pair of brown doe-eyes you've ever seen. So for Claude Rains fans (and their number is legion), this is a must have movie for your collection.
