This Traveltalks visit to Maryland spends the majority of its time in Annapolis, the capital city and home of the U.S. Naval Academy. In addition to seeing naval midshipmen on parade, we visit the campus of St. John's College and look at the different styles of architecture used for the state government buildings. Then it's off to Baltimore and a visit to Fort McHenry. It was here that Francis Scott Key, viewing the bombardment of the fort by the British, was inspired to write the "The Star Spangled Banner".

Historic Maryland (1941)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Nice entry in MGM's TravelTalks series takes us to Maryland where we spend most of our time at the Annapolis, the capital and home of the U.S. Naval Academy. Here we learn the various rules of what it takes to get in and how one might be selected to get in. We also take a peek at St. John's college and learn it's one of the few places where Greek culture is taught. We also see Carvel Hall, see where the Sons of Liberty met and see the burial ground of John Paul Jones. If you're a fan of the series then you know what to expect. There are quite a few good visuals here, all in Technicolor of course, and we also get some pretty good stories. I guess it should come as no shock that we'd spend the majority of time in Annapolis considering what was going on in the world during 1941.
