Quotes

Narrator: The pyramids of Mexico are without question the most noteworthy of all the relics that remain in tribute to the ancient Toltec Indians, who are credited with having built them centuries before the coming of the white man. This one is called the Pyramid of the Moon and it has yet to be uncovered and explored. But, a few 100 yards away may be seen the Pyramid of the Sun, which after having had it's topsoil removed, reveals a perfectly preserved Pyramid. One of the wonders of the Western World.

Rural Mexico (1935)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

TravelTalks entry takes us to a few small towns in Mexico including Mazatlan where we learn about the various fishing villages, their giant turtles and some coconut trees and how they deliver food and drink to the people (as well as nice shade). In Toluca we go on market day where the Mexican Indians sell their food as well as their famous pottery. Finally we see some pyramids that are still standing and hear how some places have a lack of water. James A. FitzPatrick does his usual nice narration and overall this is yet another pleasant entry in the series. Some of the best moments happen early on in the fishing village as we see one young man climb up a tree, which was fun to watch. Running just under 8-minutes the film does a nice job at teaching us about some forgotten places and that alone makes this worth viewing if you're a fan of the series.
