Chasing Rainbows is a 1930 American romantic musical film directed by Charles Reisner, starring Bessie Love and Charles King, and released by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.


Film preservation

Chasing Rainbows was mostly filmed in black and white, but had two Technicolor sequences. Today those sequences are lost (originally removed for a 1931 re-release and destroyed in the Vault 7 fire), but the rest of the movie survives. It has been issued on DVD in the Warner Archive Collection. The lost sequences included the "Happy Days Are Here Again" performance.


The movie introduced the song "Happy Days Are Here Again".
