Storybook Salzburg

Date produced: 1966

Description:

"A rather thorough glimpse of the little town of Salzburg, Austria, is given to us in this well constructed little film. We find music, distinctive dress, churches, parks, and people. The narrator and the sound track go a long way towards amplifying the mood that is created by the visuals" PSA Journal, Sept. 1966, 36.


Corpus Christi Day in Hallstatt

Date produced: 1955

Filmmaker(s):

Esther S. Cooke

Description:

"Esther Cooke presents an outstanding motion picture. This colorful pageant, filmed against a background of majestic Austrian Alps satisfies in every respect. A masterful eye for beautifully composed scenes is evident throughout the film. The pageant is covered from such a variety of angles, one marvels at Esther Cooke's ability to record the vent single handed. The accompanying musical background and very informative narration are obviously the result of careful research and planning. Leo J. Heffernan narrates the film - truly a masterpiece among travelogues." PSA Journal, Dec. 1955, 34.
