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>

Mighty Niagara (1943)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Niagara Falls is the setting for this entry in MGM's TravelTalk series with James FitzPatrick. Here we learn how New York and Ontario share the famous site and how hotels have been put up on both sides so that people can come and stay. We also hear how newlyweds are the most common guests and usually take a trip on the boat Maids of the Mist. This is yet another decent entry in the series, which really benefits from some beautiful shots of the falls. The stuff dealing with the War of 1812 was pretty interesting as well. Countless other and better documentaries have been done on the falls but it's nice seeing how it looked so many years ago.
