Storyline

This travelogue begins with a brief visit to Cambridge, with views of Clare College, the town, and the Cam, as the narrator lists some of Cambridge's famous alumni. Then it's on to Oxford. First there's a survey of some of the town's rich architecture, with a look at New College, Magdalen College, the university church, and central theatre. The recent history of women students is summarized. We visit Eton, noticing the formal wear of its privileged students, then it's on to King's College for a history lesson. The Traveltalk concludes with boating on the Thames. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Visiting England's Halls Of Learning
8 August 2000 | by Ron OliverSee all my reviews

An MGM TRAVELTALK Short Subject.

Our quick tour of SCHOLASTIC ENGLAND begins at Cambridge, continues on to Oxford & concludes at Eton. At all three institutions we see majestic buildings and hear a little about their histories. We conclude with scenes of a student cricket match & punting on the Thames.

This is one of a large series of succinct travelogues turned out by MGM, beginning in the 1930's. They featured Technicolor views of beautiful & unusual sights around the globe, as well as vivid, concise commentary. These films were produced & narrated by James A. FitzPatrick.
