Electrical power is the heart of the motion picture!
20 September 2001 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This is a short movie about the importance of electricity, in particular for the motion picture industry. In starts with the making of the Boulder Dam and the electricity it generates. We see how this is converted suitable for normal usage. A nice detail is that there is a shot of a set from The Wizard of Oz (1939). In this set a deleted scene is recorded with Judy Garland and Ray Bolger which you can see in the documentary That's Dancing (1985).

At the end of the movie there are some trailers: Fast Company (1938), Idiot's Delight (1939), Tarzan in Exile (1939), Four Girls in White (1939), Return of the Thin Man (1939), Broadway Serenade (1939), Burn 'Em up O'Conner (1939) and Honolulu (1939).
