| But romance takes on a whole new meaning in Nevada...
A nice, but undistinguished, look at Nevada--mostly at the glittering night life where new associations are made and new romances bloom and die in Reno.

The short begins with a winding road overlooking a spectacular view of Lake Tahoe. It winds its way across what the narrator calls "a mineral wealth of land" where the Gold Rushers discovered gold in the 1850s. We get a brief glimpse of a deserted looking Virginia City which was once a thriving metropolis but in the 1940s has become a ghost town of few occupants.

We see the popularity of Dude Ranches rise as women await a period of divorcement by spending their waiting period at these ranches, probably hoping to find a cowboy during the interim. Memories of Claire Booth Luce's wicked portrait of such ladies in THE WOMEN comes to mind. Naturally, we're made aware of Las Vegas being famous for being the city of marriage and divorce.

Nothing distinguished about this short, but the Technicolor views of lakes and pine trees are nice.
