Trip to Yesterday, A

Date produced: 1958

Filmmaker(s):

Paul L. Kubitschek

Description:

"Paul L. Kubitschek takes us to the Denver, Rio Grande & Western Railway for a journey to Silverton, Colorado. With all the thrill that comes to those who love the sway of cars and the resounding clatter of the rails amidst the grandeur of lakes and villages in high country flavored with ghost towns and mining arenas. The skeletons of yesterday where wind and rain have beat time and mute evidence of activity long ceased. Where silent memories of the past may be read from the weathered timbers and scraps of metal. A lone rocking chair left to enjoy the warm sun and the beauty of the hills" PSA Journal, Nov. 1958, 47.

Tukii

Date produced: 1958

Filmmaker(s):

Russell Jameson

Description:

"A lover of wild life and good fishing, Russell Jameson has a real fishing picture for those who would like to go into the wilds of British Columbia where the lakes and streams are generously populated with big ones which are willing to make the anglers' acquaintance. Most of the fishing is with barbless hooks for the sport and catch is returned to the stream uninjured. The musical score and sound effects add a great deal to this picture. It will tempt any fisherman with the time and money to indulge in the sport" PSA Journal, Nov. 1958, 48.

Tumbling Waters

Date produced: 1949

Filmmaker(s):

Leo J. Heffernan

Description:

"In Tumbling Waters Leo J. Heffernan has turned his experienced and competent camera on that perennial favorite of travel filmers, Niagara Falls. The result is a sparkling piece of lighthearted showmanship, climaxed by a truly gripping and probably unique sequence filmed amid the swirling mists of the Cave of the Winds. The overall effect of Tumbling Waters, however, was marred for these reviewers by recurring levities of treatment deemed out of key with the essential majesty of the subject." Movie Makers, Dec. 1949, 471-472.


Turf Tales

Date produced: 1943

Filmmaker(s):

Leonard Bauer

Description:

"In Turf Tales, Leonard Bauer, jr., has tackled an acceptedly difficult subject for the personal movie maker — and has done well by it. The subject, as might be guessed, is professional horse racing. The setting of Mr. Bauer's study is the relatively ancient track of Pimlico, outside Baltimore, with the climax of the picture provided by a record of its traditional classic, the Preakness. But the strength of Turf Tales derives more from its highly competent sequences of human interest behind the scenes — the early morning time trials, the stable boys and their chores, the track farrier as he shapes the delicate racing shoes and the strange, unexplained mascots of the high strung thoroughbreds. A commendably restrained narrative, set against a musical background, accompanies the film on a sixteen inch disc recorded by Mr. Bauer." Movie Makers, Dec. 1944, 496-497.
