Storyline

A travelogue with an unseen narrator who takes us first to see the falls from the Canadian side, provides some history of the fort and the battle there between the British and the Americans during the War of 1812, describes the death of General Brock and the monument to mark his career, shows us the national parks on either side of the river, and takes us on a trip up close to the falls on the sightseeing boat, the Maid of the Mist. Along the way are facts and figures and a nod to Niagara as the continent's honeymoon capital. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Moderately interesting look at Niagara Falls...
11 January 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

I wish I could rate these James FitzPatrick Travelogs higher than I do, but frankly they're really as dull as can be. These shorts that he produced have all the luster of the sort of documentaries we had to watch in the school auditorium when I was a kid. Dry, humorless, dull.

The only redeeming thing here are the Falls themselves. They look splendid, whether shown in a panoramic way or whether just used as background for sights in the park and elsewhere.

Indeed they are a great natural wonder and it's understandable that the parks in 1943 were receiving two million visitors per year.

We're shown hotel restaurants that give patrons at outdoor tables a view of both sides of the falls. We get a brief look at Ft. George, the Queenstown Heights Memorial to a famous general and the fabled Maid of the Mist that gives tourists a spectacular cruise along the gentler waters of the river.

Spectacular falls, dull documentary.
