USACE U.S.Army Corps of Engineers 1965 film about the Ohio River

A real film, from 1965 1955. Don’t be dismayed: it’s 29 minutes long. It presents the Ohio River solely as a transportation route for barges that carry coal to fuel heavy industries. There is a snippet about recreational boating. It seems to have been made to develop support for building the high-lift 1200 foot locks and dams. If anyone has a citation for this film, please contact me so I can include it. United States, Army, Corps of Engineers. 1955. Young Man River. Alexandria, Virginia: National Audiovisual Center. OCLC Accession number: 5598991. Thank you, WorldCat!
