A TRAVEL FILM
'File main film shown in, the Catholic herald 'rravelling Cinema is Fr. Hubbard's A nialichak, e film of a trip to tlie. voloanoes cif the. Alasean pet-di-1801a. Although it is unlikely that any reader will make such a trip, similar films craild be made or a walking or motortour or EnglancL Pr. Hubbard has made a trip On sledge and boat very interesting.
If one might criticize the Slim it would be because the journey is shown in great detail, white the most interesting part, the exploratiou ‘vork in Antakchale is rushed ihrutigh.
THE "CATHOLIC HERALD" FILM
This short picture will not teach us' many lessons, but it gives one good illostralion of hew the film can convey U ilk:Jaunty YN.r..n hinter than ■vords Tnke. for in:dal-fee, thr s114.1ts about the politic-al parties. Thse-. is no need to spend se:vet-it 1111111111-explaining, so imisly lest smile reader take offence. the incompleteness of all parties; the litimornits shots cif the Houses of Paella'tient in various pesitions is enough.
I have always forgotten to inquire w-hat motives led the C 0 1 hoti Herald managers to select the particular programme that is being shown. but they deseerve the thanks of ali amateurs for bringing to us films that. we might have made. films that. teeele.us several vaineble lessons.
