America’s Heartland in the 1950s: Midwest Holiday (1952)

Auto travelogue through the sights, monuments and mythologies of America’s heartland. A jaded newspaper reporter returns from a long stint in Europe, takes to the highways of the Midwest, and discovers a father-daughter team who help him to realize that his true home lies in mid-America. A fascinating view of Midwestern and Great Plains natural and historical attractions, and a strong statement that mobility equals freedom. What did you think?
