Roaming Through Arizona (1944)

** (out of 4)

Weaker entry in MGM's TravelTalks series takes us to Arizona where we visit various cities including Tucson, Phoenix and Jerome. We learn how many cities have a Spanish feel to them and that Pancho Villa made a lot of money by taking water to various towns that didn't have much. We see a statue of Frank Luke, a young man who lost his like in WW1 but not until after many missions flown. If you're looking for many interesting stories or visuals then it's best to look elsewhere and that's what makes this one of the more disappointing entries in the series. Normally you'd be in for at least one great story but that never happens here. The Technicolor is also wasted because we don't get that much to look at and one wonders what the point of this short was because there's just not too much to it. We do get to see a spot where scientists believe use to be a forest until a sea covered it up only to later be turned to stone.
