GREETINGS FROM BERTRAND ISLAND.

DVD_BertrandIsland[DVD: Herschberg Productions, Inc. – 2000 – 47 mins +extras]. For more than 70 years, an amusement park in the hills of north-western New Jersey provided summertime fun for the young and the young at heart. The roar of the roller coaster, the magic of the carousel, the smell of popcorn in the air, and the sense that adventure was only as far away as the next ticket booth. For countless thousands, the place that had all this and more was Bertrand Island Amusement Park (Mount Arlington, New Jersey), on Lake Hopatcong. Additional footage includes: Postcards From The Past; More Memories; Park Memorabilia; Lake Hopatcong Silent Classic; Extra Vintage Footage, and more. ANDY SHINE SAYS: A great documentary. I watched this a few times with growing fondness. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
