Description: Sound (English), b&w, 11 min. The Corinth Canal, which cuts through Greece to join the Adriatic and Aegean Seas, was rendered useless by retreating German troops in 1944. Marshall Plan aid helped the Greeks clear the canal of wrecked ships and sunken railroad cars, around which tons of silt had built up. By 1950, the canal has been restored as a lifeline of the nation—a boon to the Greek fishing fleet and ocean-going commerce. As a result, Piraeus is again a busy port and trans-shipping center for cargoes. Unusually well photographed. 1950. Produced and directed by John Ferno, assistant director Nelo Risi, Françoise Diot, editor. John Ferno Productions, Paris, for ECA Greece.
