This does not work here.  This does not overwrite my color theme

BTW. changing the variables which store my color theme properties does not
work.  Emacs's load-theme, which is called in my init.el, examines the
theme variable and sets all the properties globally.  I need a method to
make load-theme set the theme properties frame-local, so I can call it
in my after-make-frame-functions.
