Storyline

This travelogue of the natural areas of the state of Utah begins in Zion National Park, whose geological splendor is the result of years of erosion and plate tectonics. Man-made development in the park, such as the Mount Carmel Highway and Tunnel, permits human access. There are many canyons in the park, including Powell Canyon, each with its own unique feel. The second and last stop is Bryce Canyon National Park, where there may not be a more diverse and spectacular array of geological formations anywhere in the world. Written by Huggo

Monumental Utah (1944)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

The title alone should tell you that we've got another entry in MGM's TravelTalks series with James A. FitzPatrick. This time we visit Utah where we get to visit various sites including Mormon Tabernacle Choir as well as some mountains, which Indians once believed held demons. FitzPatrick said that up until recent years no one was able to reach this site other than Indians and early settlers. As a whole this is another decent episode but I was somewhat shocked to see that there really wasn't too many places visited. The narration is also cut back and instead we just get long tracking shots of the locations that we're looking at, which actually wasn't a bad thing. The mountain range we visit is pretty much a couple minute drive down the road with the film just letting our eyes see everything there is.
