“Road to Grandeur”
One highway in this land every American—sometime or other—should travel from end to end. That is U.S. 89, which commences in the wonders of Glacier National Park on the Canadian Border and stretches grandly southward past Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, Salt Lake City and the myriad marvels of Utah, Grand Canyon and the Indian Country, the splendors of Arizona, and thence to the Mexican border.
For years the Lines have been laying plans to film this most spectacular of all American highways. Now it has been accomplished.
“ROAD TO GRANDEUR” is a powerful and unified color motion picture story of a continuous journey along a single roadway. It represents two full years of workmanship, and gives wide scope to Line’s ability to combine scenic grandeur with real humor, adventure, suspense and depth of perception.
“ROAD TO GRANDEUR” has the forceful ingredients necessary to a great motion picture of almost universal appeal. These are important facts to consider when choosing a program.
