1964 NEW YORK WORLD'S FAIR REPORT (1961, B&W, 25:55)
The planning, organizing, staffing, directing and construction of the transformation of Flushing Meadow Park, Queens County New York circa 1961into the New York World's Fair circa 1964 under the guiding hand of Robert Moses.

UNIVERSAL NEWSREEL: NEW YORK WORL'S FAIR (MARCH 3RD 1964, B&W 2:04)
"Peace Through Understanding" is the theme of this yet-to-be-ompleted World's Fair, which was built atop the same location as the 1939 New York World's Fair.

OUT OF THIS WORLD (1964, COLOR, 13:16)
The Frigidaire Division of General Motors produced this archetypical capitalist propaganda piece wherein a family goes to the Futurama exchibit where mom goes through the nearest thing to a psychedlic experience a corporate film of the time could get away with. A wild view of what a great life would be had during our own time (which involves deforestation for cattle ranching - great!) ends up with a visit to futuristic cities whose whole purpose seems to be...places to buy & use Frigidaires!

UNIVERSAL NEWSREEL: FAIR FROM ON HIGH (MAY 3RD 1965, B&W, 1:15)
The monorail takes center stage as the park reopens after it's winter hiatus and shows off the new features added to the fair this year.

UNISPHERE: BIGGEST WORLD ON EARTH (1964, COLOR 14:09)
U. S. Steel was so proud of the steel Unisphere it created this film to show those unique World's Fair steel structures of the past (such as the Crystal Palace of the first World's Fair [London 1851] and the Eiffel Tower [Paris 1889]) in order to contrast those accomplishements with its own.

TO THE FAIR! (1965, B&W, 26:10)
Excellent overview of each aspect of the park's exhibits, rides, restaurants and pavilions. A top-rate production - but it'll make you feel like you want to go there right now!

WORLD'S FAIR NIGHT AERIALS (1964, 4:19)
Breathtaking aerial views of the fair at night that make you feel like you are right there - and you'll even get a glimpse of a game in progress at Yankee Stadium, too!
