Storyline

This Traveltalk visit to St. Louis, Missouri, starts with a short history lesson. We then see several of the city's architectural landmarks and the many types of vessels that travel on the Mississippi River. About four minutes (of nine) are spent at the zoological garden in Forest Park, where we see rhinoceros, giraffes, polar bears, giant pandas, and a group of trained elephants.

Visiting St. Louis (1944)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

TravelTalks entry takes us to St. Louis, which was the seventh biggest city in the U.S. when this short was filmed. The start of the film gives us a quick history lesson as we learn the city was found in 1764 and by 1944 there were over one-and-a-half million people living there. The film makes sure to let us know that the city has a little bit for everyone no matter what they're looking for be it museums, churches or the famous zoo. The last portion of the film takes place at the zoo and is clearly the highlight as we get to see elephants, rhinos, pandas and several other animals. Fans of the James FitzPatrick series will know what to expect but due to the zoo stuff this here is certainly one of the better entries from this decade of the series. The Technicolor is certainly a major benefit and the history lesson is nice as well.
