Released by Charles Urban's Eclipse company in early 1910, Riva, Austria and Lake Garda was what was then designated as a "scenic." The film afforded viewers several choice glimpses of the natural beauties of the Austria-Hungary empire. The reviewer for Variety enjoyed the film, but allowed that it didn't take much creativity to pick out some pretty scenery for photographic purposes. He further suggested that some enterprising American filmmaker offer a series of "scenics" showing off the visual splendors of the good old U.S.A. Then as now, some folks lived and died by the slogan "Buy American."
