"'Europa Touring,' winner in the scenic class, was a 'honey' in any man's language. It was the film handiwork of Ellis M. Yarnell and C. Y. Kimball of Redondo Beach, Cal.; and was the story of a tour of Northern Europe, where the summer grass, as in northern countries, really is green — which last remark of course tells you the subject was in color. The two men have been making amateur motion pictures for seven years. Yarnell is a member of the Delta Kappa Alpha, Cinema Fraternity, U.S.C., and Kimball of the Amateur Cinema League." American Cinematographer, Jan. 1938, 28.
Shot using Cine Kodak Special and Cine Kodak K cameras, and Kodachrome film (American Cinematographer, Jan. 1938, 27).

Three U. S. C. students received awards in the international contest conducted by the American Cinematographers for 8 mm. and 16 mm. films. Eilis Yarnell’s “Europa Touring,” won second prize of $50. This picture, taken on a 16 mm. camera during Yamell’s tour of Europe this summer, was a travelogue of the places he visited. He was sent by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as official photographer for the group that the institute sent to study the industries of Europe. The tour covered a period of two months.
