For nostalgia and history buffs alike.
23 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw James Fitzpatrick's "Old New Orleans", one of many short documentaries produced under the series "Traveltalk" in the 1930s and 40s. Thanks to Turner Movie Classics for showing these historical short films. "Old New Orleans" is a delightful and nostalgic look back in time. Thie short documentary should be considered a priceless gem by movie and history buffs alike. It doesn't hurt that I love the city of New Orleans. After having visited that city several times, I loved this film's showing of the city some 60 years ago along with its brief history. Shown are landmarks including St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, Cafe Du Monde, the French Market, Canal Street and the Roosevelt Hotel. Views of 1940 "modern downtown" is wonderful along with shots of the paddle-wheel steamer Capitol and cotton bails being moved on the famous New Orleans docks. I strongly recommend this film and it's "sister", "Modern New Orleans".
