Storyline

This Traveltalk entry starts in Miami, which at the time of filming was still a small vacation community. We then go to Hialeah to watch the thoroughbred horses race. After short stops at The Everglades and Cypress Gardens, we are taken to Silver Springs, named after its pristine waters. Mr. Ross Allen, director of the Silver Springs Reptile Institute, is shown catching alligators and milking a poisonous snake of its venom. The venom is sent to pharmaceutical companies to manufacture snakebite serum. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Southern Florida gets the James A. FitzPatrick Traveltalk treatment...
10 October 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

A fairly interesting Traveltalk short from James A. FitzPatrick deals with Florida as a tourist resort. Mention is made of the cargo of coconuts that ended up in Florida after a shipwreck and were the source of the many sheltering palms long the shoreline.

Various scenes of resorts in Miami with their private pools and outdoor dining facilities are glimpsed before we move to the Everglades and scenes along the Swanee River. A look at Cypress Gardens is followed by scenes of Seminole Indians living along the Swanee River.

Some underwater scenes of swimmers frolicking with sea turtles and what must be a tranquilized alligator is skillfully photographed and shows how clear the Florida waters are.

Just slightly better than average for a FitzPatrick short.
