This MGM short, part of James A. Fitzpatrick's Traveltalks series starts off in Denver, capital of Colorado, the mile high city. Known as a recreational and health center, it is noted for its beautiful parks. The Museum of Natural History has specimens of local animal life. About an hour's drive from Denver on Lookout Mountain is the grave of Col. William Cody, 'Buffalo Bill', known as a scout and a plainsman. In Colorado Springs, there is a monument to the great American humorist Will Rogers who loved the stretches of open country. Much of the mountain area of Colorado is owned by the Federal government as national forest and there are many well stocked trout streams. In Mesa Verde National Park you will find the cave dwellings once used by Native Americans. Written by
This is the famed Civic Center of Denver, capital of the state of Colorado and the commercial hub of the Rocky Mountain empire. In less than 90 years, Denver has grown from a tiny settlement of prospectors to its present population of almost 400,000 inhabitants, while the vast number if its government offices has given the city the reputation of being the Little Capital of the United States.

One of the better entries in MGM's TravelTalks series takes us to Colorado where we get a quick history of the state before seeing some of the famous places there including a stop by the grave of Buffalo Bill. We also see the Will Rogers Memorial in Colorado Springs as well as the Red Rock Mountains. Other things we learn is the fact that over 100,000 fishing license are given each year, which works out good because there are over 6,000 miles of streams and millions of fish are released in them each year. If you're a fan of the series then you know we get some beautiful Technicolor that brings all of this stuff to life and of course James Fitzpatrick's narration helps tell the stories. He even gets a director's credit here and there's no question that he knows what to film and how to bring it to life. The beautiful Technicolor really makes this entry work because there's so much beautiful in the land that you can't help but be soaked up into everything you're watching.
