Copenhagen, City of Towers (1953)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

With a title like COPENHAGEN, CITY OF TOWERS you know you must be watching a TravelTalks short from MGM. This time out we're in Copenhagen, Denmark as narrator James A. FitzPatrick explains that there are over 1-million people living there and that the sea offers up some of the greatest seafood in the world. With that in mind we visit a fish market as well as learn that a large portion of people still ride bicycles to wherever they need to go. We see a wide range of the architectural spots of Copenhagen as well as one special place where people can see what the weather's going to be like by looking for the figure to be on a bike for clear or with a rain coat for storms. This is yet another pleasant entry in the long-running series as once again we're treated to some great history as well as some terrific visuals in Technicolor. The highlight of this short came at the very end when we get the see the city lit up at night.
