The millions of travelers using the American transportation facilities will be interested in the Life Filmstrip on our National Parks . The strip shows in splendid detail various examples of “America’s Wonderlands.” Featuring the magnificence of such parks as the Grand Teton, Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon, the filmstrip also includes views of the Great Smokies and the Everglades. For those who want more than the natural grandeur of the landscape, there are also close-ups of notable examples of animal and plant life. The ordinary camera fan might bear in mind that this strip utilizes the efforts of Life ’s most skilled photographers.
A more historical treatment to a subject of cultural history is provided in the Life Filmstrip survey of Theater: Ritual to Broadway . The 69 black and white frames trace the development of the dramatic arts from Greek and Roman dramas to recent examples on the American stage. Most of the examples, in fact, are of modern American productions of the historic subject.
