Scholastic England (1948)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another entry in MGM's long running TravelTalks series with James A. FitzPatrick. This time out we travel to England where we get to see Cambridge, Oxford and Eton. Along the way we learn a little bit about their history and end the film on a brief cricket match. I'm really not sure what the cricket match has to do with anything unless it's just filler to round out the movie but this is another pleasant entry in the series. We get several great visuals as always and the Technicolor really bring them to life. The one downside is that we don't get too much history on the actual schools. We also get to visit Grant Bridge and Christ Church.
