LEAVE IT TO ROLL-OH (1940, B&W, SOUND, 8:42)
Don't you just love the housework robots we've all come to know and enjoy? Well, maybe we don't yet live in the world of the Jetsons, but the World of Tomorrow had us using this homemaker's work saver as early as the 1960s!

TO NEW HORIZONS (1940, COLOR, SOUND, 22:59)
This is the complete renowned motion picture that the famous 1939 World's Fair "World of Tomorrow" films clips of futuristic cars traveling on far-out superhighways of "the wonder world of 1960" (!) that you've seen in so many documentaries come from. Jam Handy produced this General Motors message film which sees a strange world indeed at a point in the future some 45 years before our time & which was intended for viewing at the Futurama exhibit of GM's Highways and Horizons" pavilion. Simply a must-see!

More lovely color amateur film that condenses the fair's exhibits down to 7 1/2 minutes.

Black & White amateur film documenting amongst other things the apparent use of nude "live" statues!

A "sweetened" print of the first 15 minutes 10 seconds of the Wathen amateur film collection, featured above, and processed for contrast and color balance.

Seven film reels of breathtaking Kodachrome amateur color film that documents the many different sights to be seen at the fair - some very risque even for our times!
