Using a blackboard, Hatch shows a world population of 1.6-billion people. They thought that was the population of the time (1947), but as of 2012, the population is almost 4.5 times as much - over 7-billion. See more »
Academy Award winning documentary short deals with how the land can help save us all in the future. A mighty nice white man teaching Mexicans how to make their soil rich so that this will feed their families. He also teaches them to share, how to be nice and how to pee in a straight line. I was joking about the peeing part but I'm shocked that didn't happen in this documentary trying to teach people how to be nice to their neighbors. I don't mind sentimental stuff, hell I love Chaplin but this here was just way too much. I'm sure this thing meant well back in the day but it just doesn't work today and I'm sure some might be upset over the notion of how "dumb" the Mexicans are.
