Another Pathe "scenic," Banks of the Ganges shows exactly what its title says it shows. The journey along the Ganges river cannot be called eventful, but it certainly is colorful, made even more so by Pathe's decision to color-tint the frames. A wide variety of Hindu tribespersons parade past the camera, many of them quite immodestly garbed by 1910 standards. The journey ends with a "guided tour" of several ruined castles and religious shrines. Banks of the Ganges was one of five films released in the U.S. by Pathe during the first week of April, 1910.
