DANIEL BOONE, TRAIL BLAZER (Theatrical Release USA 1956)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Daniel Boone: Trail Blazer—good, simple, afternoon, family entertainment fare—unfortunately, needs complete restoration. The acting? Okay. Portrayal? Good. Presentation? Good. An average entertainment piece that serves average entertainment needs. Be aware that the discoloration creates significant disadvantages such as the inability to read commentary toward the conclusion of the movie.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. Simple, linear story serves family entertainment needs. Be aware that the movie’s visual quality suffers from coloration defects.
