Description:

"'Indian Summer,' properly may be termed a poem on film. Bert Seckendorf took his camera into the great outdoors one autumn day and photographed many beautiful autumnal scenes which he then skillfully knit together in a smooth flowing pictorial continuity. Scenes of colorful autumn foliage, falling leaves, blue Indian Summer skies, lazy rivulets carrying tiny sailboats of leaves toward the sea -all add up to an impressive ten minutes of screen entertainment. Seckendorf photographed this picture with a Cine Special and Kodachrome film." American Cinematographer, Apr. 1950, 146.
