Storyline

This travelogue begins with the vast agricultural wealth of the country, whose farmers can produce four times the amount required to feed the country's population. As such, the export of these agricultural products is a vital part of the country's economy. This agricultural tradition extends to its food consumption, as Denmark's vast array of open faced sandwiches is world renowned. It also extends to flower production and the Dane's love of flowers, which are sold in public markets. Denmark has a strong social support system, as witnessed by the free and mandatory public schooling, free medical services for expectant mothers and children, the provision of cooperative housing and housing for seniors, and the provision of old age pensions without premiums.

Delightful Denmark (1953)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another nice entry in James A. FitzPatrick's "TravelTalks" series takes us to Denmark where we start off by learning about the farm land. We learn that the farmers grow about four-times the amount of food that the people actually need and that milk, butter, eggs, cheese and bacon are the most popular exports. We also learn that there are very few large farms so that more people can work and own part of the land. We see a few "yes" horses and learn how the unions keep prices at one rate and at times. From this point on we travel to Copenhagen where we learn about the popular Danish "open sandwich" and also visit a location that serves six-hundred different types of sandwiches. Finally, we learn that the old are taken care of free of charge after they retire and learn that pregnant mothers get free milk for a year and also free health care for the first year of the child's life. Overall, this is a pretty impressive short from the series as we get non-stop stories and best of all is that the majority of them are quite interesting. As usual the Technicolor really stands out and especially those opening shots of the farm lands.
