Jeep Trails Thru Utah

Date produced: 1951

Filmmaker(s):

Stanley Midgley

Description:

"'Jeep Trails Through Utah' was produced by Stan Midgley with the use of a jeep rather than his faithful bicycle. He had to leave his bicycle at home, as the deep sands of Utah can only be traveled in a jeep. In his mechanical horse he criss-crossed one of the emptiest blanks on the American map. He leaves the traveled highways and goes back into the little known areas to find fantastically beautiful and unusual natural formations. He travels over sand-blown desert trails, up rocky mountain paths and through treacherous mountain gorges to produce a gem-like picture of Utah." La Canada Valley Sun, Sept. 9, 1971.


Free Wheeling In The Utah Parks

Date produced: 1946

Filmmaker(s):

Stanley Midgley

Description:

"Mr. Midgley's production is a gay and picaresque saga of a 350 mile jaunt by bicycle along the highways of Bryce and Zion National Parks and Cedar Breaks National Monument. Distinguished camera work, pleasing compositions and imaginative treatment contribute to the film's success. Outstanding in the picture, however, are its crisp pace and lighthearted laughter at the cyclist's own wry adventures. Brightly executed titles and a restrained use of a fine "running gag" round out this altogether engaging travel study." Movie Makers, Jan. 1947, 49.

Description:

"This color film was shown at Duncan MacD. Little's 11th annual International show of amateur motion pictures. The rising sun greets the golden fairyland of Bryce. Tunnels cut through the rocks, car passing through. Shot after shot of beautiful scenery with lovely sky and cloud affects. People climbing. Camp life shows the rugged simplicity of the daily routine of outdoor life. Grand Canyon nature's mightiest spectacle. Sunset. The magic of stop-motion compresses time and hastens drifting clouds. Night draws a veil over flaming canyon and wonderland" Educational Film Guide, 1945 Edition, 412.
