Storyline

The first half of this Traveltalks visit to the southwestern region of the United Kingdom is spent in the Cotswold Hills area. We see many examples of the stone architecture for which this region is justly famous. There is even a miniature village built to look like one might have looked centuries ago. We take a ride on the Wye River and see the many types of boats used. After a visit to Tintern Abbey in Wales, its off to Laycock Abbey in Wiltshire, England. It is here that William Henry Fox Talbot invented photography in the 1830's. Written by David Glagovsky <dglagovsky@prodigy.net>

Glimpses of Old England (1949)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Another entry in the never ending James FitzPatrick series from MGM. This time out we travel to England and start off in the Cotswold Hills era, which contains various stone architects. Next up we see such sites as the Tintern Abbey, Laycock Abbey and the Wye River. If you've seen one film in this TravelTalks series then you certainly know what to expect. This one here delivers the same amount of goods that we've come to expect, although looking at these today there's no doubt that they're quite old-fashioned and have been updated by countless documents. With that said, there's still something nice to seeing how Americans back in the day got to see other parts of the world.
