Through the Colorado Rockies (1943)

*** (out of 4)

James A. FitzPatrick's TravelTalks series travels to Colorado where we get to see the beautiful rockies as well as various other sites. These other sites include Stone Ship, Balanced Rock, the famous trout fishing and the stilt peach picking. This is one of the better entries in the series because the Technicolor really jumps off the screen and brings the beauty of the rockies right into your living room. As with all the others in the series, we get the casual information about the location but this one here is just so pretty to the eyes that you can't help but wish you could be there for yourself. The scenes from the top of the mountains are an incredible view as as the sequences dealing with the train tracks and how they were built so close to the water.
