Some of the film is in black & white while other parts are in color, again a result of sporadic fund raising. When the film was finally complete Palmer booked a local movie theater and had a "premiere". He managed to get both of the local papers to write big articles about this "local film" and apparently had a fairly good crowd for the showing. As the movie ended and the critics and sponsors exited the theater in disbelief at what a poor film they had just watched, Palmer was overheard telling one of his "moneymen" that the Mafia was after him and he would have to leave town immediately.
No one saw Palmer in Dallas again after that night and he apparently left owing a bunch of people money. At this point no one has been able to track the movie reels down for a re-launch, but reports indicate that "Scarlet Love" (Rated: PG) is a beauty, including a part where Rockey has scantily clad women tied to a "Wheel Of Fortune" type device which he throws knives at as they are spinning." (Popsike.com.) "Unbelievable lounge lizard "real people" con-man LP that defies description and has an amazing background story that needs to be known for full appreciation. The music varies from stale loungabilly to shakey-voiced croonerisms into generic session musician "rock". I personally prefer the 1979 version on strength of the two unique and excellent C-grade Elvis-impersonator tracks.
Fortunately the classic occult Holiday Inn "Scarlet Warning" track can be found on all three pressings. Let Palmer bring the smell of hair tonic and the sound of low-rent dishonesty into the privacy of your own hi-fi room. You will not regret it." - Acid Archives (Lysergia.com.) Read more on Last.fm.
