Nice entry in MGM's TravelTalks series takes us to (as the title says) Stockholm where we learn that 500,000 people live there and none of them are poor and that the place is happy to say that there aren't any beggars. We then learn that boats are the best way to get around, that the place is very peaceful and no wars could ever happen there and that most people have electricity and a telephone. James A. FitzPatrick also breaks the myth that only blondes come from Sweden and finally we get to see the famous Town Hall, built in 1922 at $22 million. If you're familiar with the TravelTalks series then you know what to expect. As usual, we get some nice stories about the place we're visiting but we also get some terrific visuals thanks to the Technicolor. I thought the film did get off to a bit of a weird start since it's bragging about there not being any slums and that tourists don't have to worry about poor people begging for items.
