Gerald Potterton, Canada, 1973, Canadian International Pictures, Arthouse

Struggling to subsist on negligible and infrequent gold discoveries, prospector Ralph Logan (Donald Pleasance, HALLOWEEN) crosses paths with Mazella (Don Calfa, THE RETURN OF THE LIVING DEAD), a New York City drifter with a three-wheel motorcycle and plenty of time on his hands. After introducing his new acquaintance to the practical, level-headed Gladys (Kate Reid, THE ANDROMEDA STRAIN), Logan suggests the trio join forces for a mission deep into the mountains of British Columbia in search of his father’s elusive stash of gold. The journey that follows is equal parts dangerous, exciting, wacky, and enlightening, as this mismatched trio goes to extraordinary lengths to make the most of their golden opportunity. The one and only live action feature from famed animation director Gerald Potterton (HEAVY METAL), THE RAINBOW BOYS is a lively showcase for the talents of its three stars and a visually stunning widescreen journey through Canada’s great outdoors that brings to mind the more expansive, adventurous Hollywood comedies of the ’50s, but with an oddball sensibility all its own.
