Land of the Incas (1937)

*** (out of 4)

Better than average entry in James A. FitzPatrick's TravelTalks series takes us to Peru where we learn about the Inca people. We learn that their origins are unknown but we hear what many believe to be how the group came to be. From here we see some of their wonderful structures that are still standing as well as visit Machu Picchu, which is a deserted city on a mountain ridge. We also learn how the people worshiped the sun and how Peru was originally divided. Finally, we get a nice history of the llama and learn how it knows the exact amount of pounds it can carry. LAND OF THE INCAS is obviously going to mainly appeal to fans of the series but I think if you're not a fan you'll still end up enjoying this one. We're given some terrific things to look at and as FitzPatrick said, how they were able to create some of this stuff without tool is just amazing. The Technicolor certainly helps bring some of this to life and there's no question that FitzPatrick has plenty of nice stories to tell.
