Glimpses of New Scotland (1947)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Yet another entry in the long-running TravelTalks series from James A. FitzPatrick and MGM. This time out we go to the eastern coast of Canada and visit Nova Scotia, Halifax. Once there we get to see some famous apple trees, learn the history of their trading posts, see their saltwater sports and learn that the city was formed in 1749. If you've seen at least one entry from this series then you'll know what to expect and FitzPatrick delivers the familiar goods. The Technicolor is the main high point here as we get to see some beautiful shots and places. This here was pretty much produced as a travel guide so that important to keep in mind while watching.
