GREETINGS FROM BERTRAND ISLAND.

VHS_BertrandIsland[VHS: Hirschberg Productions, Inc. – 2000 – 47 mins]. 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, on Lake Hopatcong. (Also available on DVD with extra features and footage). ANDY SHINE SAYS: A great documentary film. I watched this a few times with growing fondness. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
