Historic Death Valley

USA, 1952 (MIFF 1954, The American Scene)

The locale of many “Westerns”, Death Valley is here shown as it is today - a National Park with fine roads and tourist facilities, but still an awe-inspiring and fantastically coloured natural oddity. The film shows the arid deserts of the valley, the mountains, the abandoned gold mines and the rich beauty of the flowers that rise from the Valley sands.
