Relive the dazzle, wonder and fun of The 1964 Worlds Fair, an extraordinary documentary narrated by Judd Hirsch that takes a fresh look at the sights and sounds of this once-in-a-lifetime event. Part futuristic exhibition, part glittery strip mall, the 1964 New York Worlds Fair was planned amid the optimism of the late 1950s, but the Fairs 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 people who attended noticed. Acclaimed public television producer Rich Hanley draws on the delightful memories of fairgoers who found a hope for the future, an understanding of other cultures, and a delicious Belgian waffle for just a dollar. So jump in that old station wagon and take a ride back to the 1964 New York Worlds Fair!
