| Easy For Him To Say
James A. Fitzpatrick sends the Technicolor cameras under cinematographer Keith Covey to take some pictures. As you may guess from the title, it's mostly about the Zuider Zee: to be precise, the fishing villages along the Zee, vanishing as the Dutch put up dikes and drain the sea, converting what for more than a thousand years had been water into land.

Fitzpatrick offers some trite words of sympathy for the fishermen who can no longer go to sea. Yet, in his words, they must give way to progress, and learn to farm instead. Easy for him to say; in another four years he would be out of a job making travelogues. Well, he could rely on his residuals and the travel agency he had developed.

The copy I looked at on Turner Classic Movies this morning was all right in its color elements. However, it was a touch indistinct looking, leading me to believe this was off a 16mm. copy.
