The Lake District And York
25 January 2020 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

James A. Fitzpatrick sends the Technicolor cameras under the supervision of Virgil Miller and S.D. Onions to take a look at the Lake District, Wordsworth's home and the city of York in this entry in his Traveltalks series for MGM.

Fitzpatrick seems to have calmed down a bit in this one. He still speaks loudly, but he does not shout. He's impressed, although not overwhelmed in his usual sesquipedalian blather by the sights. Perhaps this reflected the self-confidence that America felt after the Second World War: nice country you've got here. Glad we could help you save it.

The print that runs on Turner Classic Movies has a blue cast to it.
