Description:

"Eugene E. Wilson has put together a completely charming vignette on the Silver King, the Canadian Salmon, told in verse and picture with simple clarity of purpose and delightful matching of words and images. In that Mr. Wilson also composed the verse, he is to be doubly congratulated, especially since the verse is in French-Canadian dialect, a much abused idiom. The camera handling, composition and final editing are all in complete harmony with the nature of the subject and its properly brief treatment. In Trente Mille Pool is a wholly entertaining piece of work." Movie Makers, Dec. 1951, 412.
