The Goose Boy is of historical importance as the first color production from the newly nationalized Hungarian movie industry. Inspired by Mihaly Fazekas' epic poem, the film stars Imre Soos as Matty, a Hungarian Robin Hood type who turns outlaw after suffering mightily from the oppression of the aristocrats. On three different occasions, Matty administers a beating on one of his former tormentors (Teri Horvath), and in each instance the scene is bizarrely played for laughs! Goose Boy was filmed in Gezacolor, a European color process that rendered pleasing exterior views, but was somewhat lacking when used indoors. Goose Boy might have fared better in the U.S. with stronger names in the leading roles.
