This scene from King Vidor's BARDLEYS THE MAGNIFICENT had the actual date of the filming overhead. April 16th 1926. Very interesting. Originally plans were to produce BARDLEYS entirely in Technicolor. And Claire Windsor was to play the role of the Lady Roxalanne. Plans were dropped because Douglas Fairbanks released THE BLACK PIRATE in Technicolor. Since BARDELYS was essentially a spoof, of the Fairbanks swashbuckler's MGM didn't think that Doug would take kindly to the Technicolor process.

 

I think BARDELYS would be far higher regarded if the missing 3rd reel were found. The stills that bridged the story are nice, but hopefully the lost reel turns up someplace and can be saved. They also took some brief footage from a trailer. Magazine's talked about the chance to see Clair Windsor's Naturally blonde hair and clear blue eyes in Color,. However, her eyes would have appeared green in the film., because Two-Color Technicolor's base colors are Red and Green. The still took me all night to finish this morning. Over three hours! Normally I can get at least 4 or 5 done in that period to time.
