American Antiquity. This color yet silent travelogue from 1945 shows us the American southwest, with particular focus on evidence of early human habitation in the area. We get a tour of the ancient pueblos of Mesa Verde and images of many kinds of artifacts that have bee dug up there. We also get to see lots of footage of the Native Americans of the southwest carrying on their traditional ways of life. There's a great scene of a Native American woman carding, spinning, and weaving wool into a beautiful blanket with traditional designs on it. Lots of historical interest here. Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: *****. Overall Rating: ***.
