I would like to see and/or purchase the 1936 movie Ramona with Loretta Young. I have visited Colorado Springs where the book Ramona was written, and found there much information about the author and Indian Activist Helen Hunt Jackson. It is a fascinating story about the author of the book and the work she did to promote and improve the Indian cause. The 1936 movie adaptation of the book is the last I believe of several, and the first of Ramona, filmed with sound and technicolor. Though I understand from reviews that the story may be "hokey", but that the early use of technicolor is well worth watching the film. I myself am eager to see for myself how the plot was handled in the film and enjoy Loretta Young. The book was a bit cumbersome to get through, but it was well received here and in Europe in the era in which it was written. Again, I am most eager to get my hands on the film and am having no luck finding it to purchase or view. Please move this film up on the priority list to show on TCM and to make it available for purchase on DVD. The story of the film, the author of the book and the plot of the Indian girl is a tribute to the accomplishments of a woman in the latter 1800's, (and from her point of view), the Indian cause and matters of racism, as well as the political implications of the Spanish turn over of California to American colonists, pioneers and government officials. Thank you so much.

I want my grandchildren to see this wonderful film. This was a must read book in high school and it would be a great learning tool for young children and even teens.
RAMONA Should be Seen More Often
- Devery Fairbanks
Hello ~ I think the 1936 film RAMONA should be seen on TV more often. It should also be made into a DVD, VHS or both. Reson being, it is a very important film; benefiting all who are interested in California history, and those interested in Native American history. RAMONA is a very powerful and profound motion picture. Thank you.
