Line’s Programs-Introducing FRL


In the last fifteen years Francis R. Line has personally presented his color motion pictures before more than a million persons in America, on nearly every major lecture course in the land from the National Geographic’s CONSTITUTION HALL in Washington, D.C. (eight appearances) to the 3000-seat Civic Auditorium in his own Pasadena (ten appearances.) Columbia University’s Illustrated Lecture Course has presented him twelve times, and the World Adventure Series of Detroit, twenty times, demonstrating a popularity seldom equalled.

Humor and adventure, intelligent commentary, superior photography, plus the fact that his films contain an indescribable quality often termed spiritual, are the reasons for their success.

Ninety-three percent of Line’s bookings have been repeat engagements, which has lowered his advertising and booking costs to a degree that he can present superior programs at reduced fees. Of importance to the peace-of-mind of Program Chairmen is the fact that in his fifteen years on the platform, Line has never missed nor been late for a single engagement.

COLUMBIA RIVER COUNTRY is the story of a 1270 mile adventure-
packed journey from the Columbia’s source in the Canadian Rockies of
Canada to its mouth on the Pacific Coast. A folder is available on request.
SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WEST presents the continuous story of a rollicking, humor-packed trip which the Line family made in their “midget” station wagon. It is 20,000 miles of laughs, adventure, and beauty, with a deep under-current of spiritual values. A special brochure
is available.
Word has been received that Francis R. Line is the all-time first place winner in the audience popularity vote of America’s oldest and largest illustrated travel course — The World Adventure Series of Detroit. The voting included nearly every leading travelogue personality of the last twenty-one years. Plans have been set to honor Line on special Television and stage presentations at the World Adventure Series’ “Coming of Age” anniversary program in Detroit
