Storyline

Québec City is seen as the gateway of the St. Lawrence and the gateway to the lesser known Kingdom of the Saguenay. Long before the pilgrims arrived in North America, French explorer Jacques Cartier landed in this region, and French explorer Samuel de Champlain developed the region with the Citadel in Québec City being the military centerpiece. This travelogue goes northeast along the St. Lawrence to the junction between the St. Lawrence and Saguenay Rivers, then northwest along the Saguenay, where the Algonquin chiefs and Cartier searched for rumored riches. The first stop is Tadoussac, a historic fur trading post which is now primarily a summer resort town on the confluence of the two rivers. The Saguenay is not only steeped with history, but is a geographic marvel, with sheer granite cliffs as high as 1,800 feet above water level. The trip ends at the Broadback River Fishing Camp located on the shores of Lake Assinica, a fishing mecca of the region. Written by Huggo

Kingdom of the Saguenay (1964)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Decent entry in Warner's "World Wide Adventures" series takes us down the Saguenay River starting in Quebec and showing us a wide range of things but most of them dealing with water and fish. Joel Aldred narrates this 9-minute short, which probably would have been a lot better had it been made a couple decades earlier, although then we probably would have called it a rip-off of MGM's TravelTalks series. I'm really not sure what the point of this thing was because Warner isn't promoting one of their major films, which is something that most shorts were doing around this time. A short from 1964 is a pretty rare thing so again, I'm not sure what the studio was going for. Still, the Technicolor cinematography was actually pretty good and we got a lot of nice images to look at. The stuff dealing with the fishing and the old-timers isn't all that entertaining but if you've got nothing better to do then this here isn't that bad.
