When You're The Voice Of The Globe, You Have To Speak Loudly, I Guess
James A. Fitzpatrick sends Charles P. Boyle and Virgil Miller out to the area around Salt Lake City and lecture the audience about salt and safe driving.
Fitzpatrick's monologues seemed to be about nothing in particular. Like modern celebrities, he seems to be concerned with whatever he is looking at, and can say something, anything, that bears a vague relationship to whatever is being discussed. I have long suspected that the modern tendency towards drivel is the concern that if the expert shut up for a moment, some other expert will appear to drivel on any subject, depriving the first expert of a meal ticket. I have long suspected that of Fitzpatrick.
Anyway, the copy I looked at on TCM this morning was in good shape, and the pictures were pretty.
