The surreal stylings of Paul Whiteman

Made in 1930 by Universal.

The first motion picture to use a pre-recorded soundtrack made independently of the actual filming.

This was only the 19th talking picture filmed entirely in two-color Technicolor. At the time, blue was not one of the options in color films.

Art director Herman Rosse and production director John Murray Anderson came up with some ingenious workarounds including using filters and other innovations which created an almost blue tint (more like turquoise in the original.)

Charlie Palmieri

Ask the great pianist Eddie Palmieri who the greatest pianist was and he will tell you it was his brother Charlie.

There’s a good reason for that.
