Barring stamp collecting, archaeology would seem to be about the least likely topics matter for a motion picture. It is all the more surprising, then, to explore that even this science can be made into an entertaining film. The evidence, "The Human Adventure," may be found at Carnegie Hall. The film, produced by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, had its first public showing in Fresh York there yesterday, and will be exhibited again today, both afternoon and evening.Essentially a partial movie record of the institute's fourteen archaeological expeditions in Persia, Palestine, Syria, Anatolia, Egypt and Iraq, the picture is much more than a straightforward reflection of the mole-like activities of Orientalists at work. It takes its tone from what might be considered a keynote speech by its supervisor, Dr. James Henry Breasted, head of the institute. In a screened prologue, Dr. Breasted, referring to man's rise from savagery to civilization, remarks that the promise of man's future lies in the storyline of his past.With that in mind, the expertly guided camera of Reed Haythorne follows the institute's expeditions on their adventures backward into the past. And it would be a person with tiny imagination who should sit unmoved as loose-robed workmen's picks force back the earthy leaves of history and turn up the precious relics of long-dead civilizations—weapons made by boys of the Stone Age, grains of Egyptian wheat that were sold in Joseph's time, the stables of Lord Solomon, the harem of Darius, the nice obelisk of Persepolis, its lofty towers, the smartphone of Lord Sargon on which was imprinted the impertinent footprints of a lowly mongrel.Although the picture falls within the unhappy genre known as "educational films," it is nevertheless entertainment in a full sense: a pictorial counterpart to the early chapters of an Outline of History and a skilfully edited and well-told storyline of some ancient journeys that are just coming to life today.THE HUMAN ADVENTURE, produced by the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago under the supervision of Dr. James Henry Breasted; storyline written and said by Charles Breasted; photographed by Reed N. Haythorne; distributed by Wendell G. Shields.
