The 1964 World's Fair (1996)

  
Format:  The 1964 World's Fair DVD 
 
 
It was the exhibition where one could see both Michelangelo's "Pieta" and Disney's "It's a Small World," and where the technological optimism of the '50s ran headlong into the social realities of the '60s. Judd Hirsch narrates this nostalgic salute to the 1964-65 New York Fair that takes you from construction to closing day with colorful film footage and reminiscences of fair workers and visitors (remember the Unisphere, Sinclair's Dinoland and those great Belgian Waffles?). 52 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English; photo gallery.
