Everything to do with the much-visited Niagara Falls is the subject of this lively documentary. Whether it is the nearly hilarious kitsch on sale at the tourist shops lining both sides of the falls, or the subject of water pollution and Love Canal, this film looks at it all, beginning with the history of the Niagara Falls as a tourist attraction. Colorful characters abound, including the many desperate daredevils who attempt to survive a ride over the falls. Even amid the relentless promotion of today, this natural wonder still has the power to entrance visitors.
