"She" is a 1935 film produced by
Merian C. Cooper. The film is based on H. Rider Haggard's novel of the same name. It stars Helen Gahagan, Randolph Scottand Nigel Bruce, with music by Max Steiner. The film is set in the Arctic rather than in Africa (the setting of the original novel), depicting its ancient civilization in an Art Decostyle, and features convincing scenes of destruction.
It was hoped that "She" would follow up on Cooper's previous success, "King Kong", however the film initially lost $180,000 at the box office, although it later became a success upon re-release. The film exists today only because silent film star
Buster Keatonhad a copy of the original print stored in his garage, which he gave to film historian Raymond Rohauer for preservation.cite web |url=http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/style/longterm/movies/videos/shenrharper_a09ea8.htm |title=‘She’ (NR) |accessdate=2007-03-07 |author=Harper, Marla |authorlink= |coauthors= |date=August 27, 1989 |year= |month= |format= |work= |publisher= Washington Post|pages= |language= |archiveurl= |archivedate= |quote= ] Cooper had originally intended to shoot the film in color, but budget cuts by RKO forced Cooper to shoot the film in black and white at the last minute. In 2006, Legend Filmsand Ray Harryhausen colorizedthe film as a tribute to Cooper. The colorized trailer for "She" premiered at the 2006 Comic-Con.
