Quaint St. Augustine (1939)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Fun entry in the TravelTalks series has host James A. FitzPatrick heading to St. Augustine, Florida where he talks about it being the oldest white settlement. Along our journey we see the oldest school house as well as one of the oldest houses on record. From here we see some of the local landmarks including Fort Marion and the location of where Pedro Menendez began his settlement in 1565. From here we take a look at an ostrich farm where we see them eat and finally we view an alligator farm, which was the largest in the country. We get some good shots of the alligators as they eat and we also see one of the workers wrestle one of them. Overall this here does exactly what you'd expect a film in this series to do. It tells you some history of what you're seeing and the Technicolor brings everything to life.
