The Palomino 1950

This film was shown today on TCM and was a pleasant and colourful little film with a simple, but good storyline.

The production values were quite high too – it was filmed in Technicolor

Columbia Pictures brought this one to the screen – I am pleased that they did

The acting in this movie is not out of the top drawer but adequate and the plot not too involved, but it was so much better than expected. One of the most delightful parts of the film was the horses. The palominos were beautiful and the acting of “The Duke” was almost on par with those of the “Smartest Horse in the Movies,” Trigger himself.

No gunfights in this one. The hero seems unlikely but works hard to be likable

This production was by Harry Cohn’s nephew Robert – he did a good job.

Vincent Farrar the photographer knows how to use his cameras and locations to great effect.

ABOVE and BELOW – Two brilliant matte shots, I think
