Excellent short by Disney
22 November 2001 | by (Tucson AZ) – See all my reviews

This documentary short won an Oscar for Two-reel short and was well-deserving of the honor. Everything about this is excellent-cinematography, locations, even the narration, which can be a problem with Disney live-action efforts, is excellent! It's ashame that The Mouse doesn't have this available to the public. I used to run occasionally on Vault Disney, but hasn't shown in quite a while, which is a shame. Worth the effort to locate. Most recommended.
