THE 1964 WORLD’S FAIR.

DVD_The1964NYWorldsFair[DVD: Connecticut Public Television – 1996 – 58 mins]. Relive the dazzle, wonder and fun of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Part futuristic exhibition, part glittery strip mall, the 1964 New York World’s Fair was planned amid the optimism of the late 1950s, but the fair’s two-year run often mirrored the chaos of the 1960s. The fair was a brawling, costly and altogether chaotic event, but few of the 52 million who attended noticed. This presentation draws on the delightful memories of fair-goers who found a hope for the future, an understanding of other cultures, and a delicious Bel-Gem waffle for just a dollar. So jump in that station wagon and take a ride back to the 1964 World’s Fair! ANDY SHINE SAYS: More facts and a look inside more attractions would have been appreciated. ANDY SHINE’S RATING: Good.
