Storyline

A look at Bali, in the Dutch East Indies, 90 miles long, 45 miles wide, and home to a million people. After a quick reference to its history, we see its rice paddies, markets, and fishing. Rice is a cash crop, and the distribution of wealth, according to the narrator, is the most equal in the world. Girls dance at the temples, from age four to fourteen. Each community has its orchestra and often a popular dancer. We watch Gigi and his back-up musicians. On the shore, tourists are just beginning to discover Bali's beauty.

Beautiful Bali (1940)

*** (out of 4)

James A. FitzPatrick's TravelTalks series was a long running one and while most entries stayed at the same so-so level, there were those that stepped up and delivered more. This episode is one of those as we take a trip to Bali, India, which has become quite popular over the past year thanks in large part to SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE. What makes this film so interesting is that we get to see some slums and how things operate there. We see these large shops with all sorts of things being sold and then we're told that it would only take a couple American dollars to buy all of it. We see several children who are clearly looking at a camera for the first time in their young lives and this here is another unique thing. The entire short has a good feel to it and that makes it one of the better episodes.
