A Day at the River: A Film Lesson in Nature Study (in the Ephemeral section of Open Video Project. Also, film #401 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Educational]

This 20s silent educational film looks at various kinds of water life in a river. It’s pretty standard for the most part, but some of the photography is nice, and it has a charming 20s feel to it, including a Tom Sawyer-like kid going fishing.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: *. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
