Hereís a publicity shot of cute little Ronald Raccoon, co-star of Flahertyís LOUISIANA STORY (1948), a decent enough little picture about confused but satisfied Acadians, frolicking in the shadows of oil derricks in the swampy bayous. Ronald Raccoon walks off with the acting honors in this petit-portrait. Aside from Ronald, itís refreshing to see a picture whose cuts need to be shorter, not longer, and to see the poor when they arenít all bent out of shape over being poor, or hopped up on political grievances!

I have nothing to say about Virgil Thomson.
