Trivia

One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its earliest documented telecasts took place in Pittsburgh Friday 7 August 1959 on KDKA (Channel 2), in Chicago 22 August 1959 on WBBM (Channel 2) and in Grand Rapids 30 September 1959 on WOOD (Channel 8). At this time, color broadcasting was in its infancy, limited to only a small number of high rated programs, primarily on NBC and NBC affiliated stations, so these film showings were all still in B&W. In Indianapolis it first aired Friday 2 October 1959 on Frances Farmer Presents, a film series hosted by former screen star Frances Farmer on WFBM (Channel 6), an NBC affiliate who was the first to broadcast it in color. It was released on DVD 7 July 2009 as part of the Universal Backlot Series. See more »

Great outdoor color.
9 September 1999 | by Rich-227See all my reviews

My mother saw this movie when she was twelve and wanted to see it again. I bought it and we both watched it. The story line and action, along with the beautiful color was well worth the price. If others did not know, this movie was the first full length feature film in color.
