Boring Short
13 May 2009 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

There'll Always Be an England (1945)

** (out of 4)

British short takes a look at various famous sites in England including the cottage where poet John Milton finished "Paradise Lost", St. Giles, the place Benjamin Disraeli broke into politics and Aylesbury. I guess you could call this a British version of TravelTalks, the popular MGM series but this movie here is just pure boredom from start to finish. This thing runs twice the length of a normal TravelTalks entry and yet I really didn't learn much. We see various places yet the boring narration just makes the locations seem dull, which isn't a good thing since this type of documentary is basically just a travelogue. Some of the scenery is quite nice but there's very little else here I got worked up over.
