"An action portrait of Vancouver-city of glamour, magic and charm. Mountain-fringed, poised on the Pacific, Vancouver is by nature endowed with beauty. Add to this its man-designed embellishments and you have indeed a jewel of the Pacific. This film presents a hundred places and events to delight the eye and please the fancy: summer skiing on snow-covered mountains, yachting on the blue waters of the Strait, swimming at golden beaches, plays and concerts at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and sights and sounds of the Pacific National Exhibition."
Description is from the Canadian Travel and Wildlife Films Catalogue and Directory of Sources 1963, p. 5.
