Storyline

This Traveltalks short starts in San Salvador, El Salvador's capital, emphasizing the Spanish architectural heritage. We then go to the Izalco Volcano, which was created in 1770 by an eruption of the Santa Ana Volcano. The focus then shifts to the country's agriculture. The two main products are coffee and henequen, a plant with tough, fibrous leaves used to make rope, baskets, and other products. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Seeing El Salvador (1945)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice entry in the TravelTalks series takes us to El Salvador where we start off seeing their first highway, which runs 180-miles and James A. FitzPatrick says that one day they hope it will run to Alaska. From here we learn that the majority of people are Roman Catholic and that everyone is legally held to vote after the age of eighteen. Other topics include a look at the Santa Ana volcano, which sits six-thousand feet up and apparently it has become known as the "Lighthouse of the Pacific". We also learn that the two top products are coffee and henequen and we see how both are produced. Fans of the series will certainly want to check this out as it features that beautiful Technicolor we've all became used to and the stories told are also quite nice. El Salvador is certainly a very beautiful place and the color really brings this out. As usual, FitzPatrick's narration helps set the tone and in the end it's certainly worth viewing.
