FitzPatrick's Traveltalks, And Talks, And Talks.....
9 December 2009 | by (Arroyo Grande, California) – See all my reviews

FitzPatrick's "Traveltalks" series of shorts seem pretty quaint today. What seemed like exotic and rare glimpses into foreign lands when this episode came out in the mid-thirties could not keep the attention of a ten year old today. With 200 channels being funneled into most homes, you're bound to find exotic lands on a few of them at any given time.

This one is in Technicolor, which helps, but FitzPatrick's recitation of the facts comes across as something akin to verbal Wikipedia.

At just eight minutes long you'd think they would try to cram in all they could on these two locations, yet we're subjected to about a minute of a guy on a ship, traveling between the islands, diving into the ship's pool and a bunch of women climbing a ladder to get out of the pool. Made no sense at all. Maybe that was fascinating too, in the 30's.

As these things go, this one is about average, but a few minutes watching the Travel channel would probably be more interesting. Can be seen now and again as one of TCM's vast array of little time killers.
