Film Description:Edited travelogue
with narrative titles

Inter-titles written by Arthur and Kate Tode (as seen in the film)

"Mediterranean Story
Sea of the Ancients

Maps and movies upon the wall
Do not mean a thing at all
To those who see but charted spaces
Separating lands and races.
But movies to Circum's who've traveled far
From homeland heath to alien star,
Flash back a thousand starried gleams
Of deserts, jungles, peaks and streams.
For never a Circum's heart but flames
To see in movies enchanting names;
To us who've circled land and sea,
Such pictures are wings of wizardry!
