A Peek At The Queen City Of The Mississippi River
13 October 2001 | by (Forest Ranch, CA) – See all my reviews

An MGM TRAVELTALK Short Subject.

Our trip to the MODERN NEW ORLEANS begins at the expansive Port, where huge amounts of cotton are shipped to the world. We are taken along lovely Canal Street and shown a glimpse of the former Huey P. Long Home. One of New Orleans' ornate above-ground cemeteries is also visited.

This is one of a large series of succinct travelogues turned out by MGM, beginning in the 1930's. They featured Technicolor views of beautiful & unusual sights around the globe, as well as vivid, concise commentary. These films were produced & narrated by James A. FitzPatrick.
