This wacky Warner Bros. two-reeler was only the second live-action short to be filmed in three-strip Technicolor, and the hues are still vibrant today. It's an odd little film -- Leon Errol and June MacCloy play Adam and Eve (Errol wears spats with his fig leaves). Once Eve partakes of the forbidden apple, the couple embarks on a trip through the ages -- a singing, dancing, and wisecracking trip, of course. Most amusing is the scene in ancient Rome where Vernon Dent plays Nero and warbles a tune. Also represented are the days of Greece, Camelot, and finally they reach modern times (or as modern as they could get in 1934), in which a group of bathing suit-clad dancers perform a tightly choreographed number with beach balls. Overall, the short is only mildly amusing, and the fact that it is in color is really its biggest selling point.
