This Colin Low documentary from 1959 depicts Venice in all its splendor. In the tradition of Venetian painter Canaletto, the film captures the great Italian city’s elusive beauty and fabled landscapes, where spired churches and turreted palaces soar into a blue Mediterranean sky. Narration by William Shatner.

    @hariferrusrex: The film now plays without the narrative description! Enjoy!

    I really love the Shatner narration and the "What is art" theme. Great to see something like this. But the other narration, the "descriptive" one, really bothered me and detracted from the overall viewing experience. (And it was read so fast, too!). I wonder if NFB has a version of this beautiful film without the narrative description ....

    Is the woman's narration a later addition? There seems to be a difference on the audio quality. The film works much better without it.
