Fisherman's Paradise
Color Scales (1932)

** (out of 4)

Pete Smith narrates this "Fisherman's Paradise" entry from the MGM series. The short takes place at the Steinhart Aquarium in San Francisco where we see a wide range of fish and sharks. Yeah, that's pretty much the entire story here as you probably aren't going to be overly entertained unless you have a real interest in fish. I think film buffs will mainly want to check this out for its early use of 2-strip Technicolor, which is certainly a major bonus since this is a film meant to show off the colors of fish. The print that was shown on TCM was a little dark but there was still plenty of detail in the colors and what really jumped off the screen were the orange and pink colors that really looked good. At least two dozen fish are highlighted here so if you're a fan of them then this here will be a must see. Smith, as you'd expect, gets a few jokes in but even his humor can't save this.
