Follow thru 1930


Follow Thru is a 1930 American pre-Code musical romantic comedy film photographed entirely in Technicolor. It was the second all-color all-talking feature to be produced by Paramount Pictures. The film was based on the popular 1929 Broadway play of the same name by Lew Brown, B. G. DeSylva, Ray Henderson and Laurence Schwab. The play ran from January 9, 1929 to December 21, 1929; running for 401 performances. Jack Haley and Zelma O'Neal, who starred in the original musical play, reprised their roles for the film version.

Contents

The film is one of dozens of musicals made in 1929 and 1930 following the advent of sound, and one of several to feature color cinematography. However, many of these films have been lost or destroyed by the original studios. The "original camera negative" of Follow Thru survives in its entirety and in excellent condition. It has been preserved by the UCLA Film and Television Archive.
