FORTY-TWO Documcntiirv is the junk-heap. Our camera then turns to the South Sea islands for a display of Hula-Hula by tots and teenagers, on then to Siam for a bout of boxing with a real "kick" in it. A more dangerous battle is that fought between Australians and man- eating sharks. These items plus a trip with a 3 ton pick-a-back glider, a V2 rocket miles above the earth and a visit to a Wash- ington home where the family pet is a three hundredweight lioness, go to make this a first-class documentary that will appeal to all audiences. SB/30594 Princess Elizabeth's Tour of Canada. (I Reel). From all parts of Canada the people rushed to greet Their Royal Highnesses — Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip—on their triumphal tour of Canada. Everywhere on route the Royal couple met with crowds of cheering people from the moment when they stepped from the plane at Montreal until they embarked at St. John's for the home- ward trip. The official tour began at Quebec, thence on to Toronto where the Royal Canadian Air Force put on a special show of its forces. Niagara Falls too vi^as a point of great interest. Journeying on, the Royal couple arrived at Calgary where, after a pow-wow with the Indian tribes encamped there, they v^ritnessed a special display of a rodeo and the famous Calgary Stampede. Next over to Port Arthur, where the celebrated Dionne Quins were presented to their Highnesses. In Washington, they were "at home" to the Press of America. Later they entertained President Truman and his family at the Canadian Embassy. Flown back to Canada, the Tour rapidly drew to a close. At every whistle stop along the route crowds thronged the stations, if only to get a brief glimpse of the young couple. Finally to St. John's where they embarked on the ship for their homeward journey. SB/30595 News Review of 1951. (I Reel).
