Dennis Morgan and Ann Sheridan
Ann Sheridan, Dennis Morgan, Irene Manning, and S.Z. Sakall star in the 1944 biographical-musical Shine on Harvest Moon, directed by David Butler. The movie tells the story of early 20th century Broadway stars Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth (Sheridan and Morgan).
While the entire film was originally planned to be filmed in Technicolor, it didn’t pan out this way. In fact, the final Harvest Moon number was shot in Technicolor while the rest of the film was black and white. The reason was due to shortages of material needed for color stock due to the war.
Studios used their limited color stock for their top films. 16mm television prints were in B&W and the Technicolor sequence was not restored until the 1980s.
