Land of Auld Lang Syne, The (1950)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

This TravelTalks entry takes us to Edinburgh, Scotland where 500,000 people currently call home. We learn that religion, science and the arts are the most important thing here and we get to see various historic sites including Edinburgh Castle. The majority of this short comes off more like a history lesson of poet Robert Burns who is best remembered for "Auld Lang Syne", which we get to hear a part of at the end of the movie. The majority of stuff here includes showing us where several of his poems were written, fields he would walk through and of course his burial spot. Fans of the series are going to find plenty to enjoy here but I think it's those curious about Burns who are going to be most thrilled. This movie takes us to some pretty neat sites if you're a fan of his so I'd guess his fans would be the ones to recommend this to the most. Once again, the Technicolor was a major plus even though the TCM print is pretty faded.
