Mission Trail, The (1946)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another film in the long-running TravelTalk series with James A. FitzPatrick. This time we look at the twenty-one Spanish mission, which begun in 1769 and went from San Diego to Sonoma. In the short we stop by San Juan Bautista, San Juan Capistrano and San Luis Rey. This is a pretty good entry in the series that once again gives us plenty to look at as well as giving us a bit of history on the subject. One of the most interesting stories takes place in San Luis Rey where original villagers were under attack by Indians when they hung out a picture of the Virgin Mary, which made the Indians put down their weapons. The Technicolor really shows off the various locations well.
