Notes[edit] Gold is Where You Find It was, in many respects, a routine Western, lifted out of the ordinary by its early use of the newly perfected 3-strip Technicolor
Technicolor
process, its big-budget director and cast, and its musical score. During the early spring of 1937, producer Hal B. Wallis was looking for a project to film in Technicolor, as a dry run for The Adventures of Robin Hood, which was not ready for release. So he chose this screenplay, making it probably the first Western shot in the new process, and second Warner Bros.
