FREEDOMLAND U.S.A.

DVD_Freedomland[DVD: A Tootsie Production – 2008 – 83 mins]. This programme is especially for those who remember and love Freedomland (The Bronx, New York. 1960-1964). Often called the “Disneyland of the East,” Freedomland was shaped in the map of the United States. Its rides and attractions told America’s history in an entertaining way. This presentation features interviews with Freedomland’s creator: C.V. Wood, and with a number of former employees. Also includes video, photographs, and radio commercials, plus lots of information about the park. ANDY SHINE SAYS: A well-researched, absorbing documentary about a short-lived park. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
