"Like the title, it is really 'Beyond Manila.' It takes the follower into a country that has been little photographed, one part of that territory being the land of the Igorrote, in Northern Luzon. There is much to be seen of the people, the way they dress and live and work. There's abundant scenic beauty in the Philippines. We see many evidences of it in the pictures here shown of mountain and plain—of stream and waterfall. The natives, too, are real workers, women as well as men." American Cinematographer, Jan. 1939, 16.
Discussed in "Keen Competition Marks 1938 Contest" (American Cinematographer, Feb. 1939, 62), and "Setting 1938 Contest Winners to Music" (American Cinematographer, March 1939, 173).
