Steffi In Technicolor
Released theatrically by RKO Radio Pictures in 1934, here are Steffi Duna, Don Alvarado, and Paul Porcasi in the Academy Award-winning short subject "La Cucaracha." This was the first live-action short subject to be filmed in three-strip Technicolor.
Made by Pioneer Pictures, with screen play by Jack Twist and Jack Wagner (based upon the story by Lloyd Corrigan and Carly Wharton), this short was photographed by Ray Rennahan, designed in color by Robert Edmond Jones, produced by Kenneth MacGowan, and directed by Lloyd Corrigan.
