Description: Sound (English), b&w, 15 min. In the Camargue, the delta region of the Rhone River in southern France, cattlemen have traditionally been proud to raise bulls, not crops. Today, without giving up their beloved bulls, the cattlemen are learning to drive Caterpillar tractors. Rice has always been grown in the Camargue, but now a French government program, aided by the Marshall Plan, is bringing vast change to the area. The salty marshes are being drained, protected from the Mediterranean Sea, and irrigated with fresh river water to produce vastly more rice than before. A good documentary on a colorful area of France, with much information about rice culture. 15 min, 1950. Produced and directed by Wesley Ruggles, camera A. Milton, editing V. Grizelin, script W. Masse, music Paul Baron, Tele-Radio-Cine Productions, Paris, for ECA France.
