Description by OLDIES.com:
The Middleton Family At The World's Fair: A suburban Indiana family visits the World's Fair when their youngest member wins a contest. Although it sports a conventional plot structure, this feature-length film - shot on location in Technicolor by the Westinghouse Company - contains some of the best existing color footage of the 1939 Fair. It also has a cast of Hollywood actors including Marjorie Lord, James Lydon, and Harry Shannon.
Offical Motion Pictures Of The New York World's Fair, 1939: A dazzling compilation of newsreel footage showing the Fair's "World of Tomorrow."
Progress Report: The planning and construction of the 1964-65 Fair in Flushing, New York is chronicled in news footage and filmed interviews.
A Ballad For The Fair: Legendary folk singer Oscar Brand composed a special song to accompany this compendium of exhibits at the '64-65 exhibition.
Color Home Movies: Yet another look at the '64-65 Fair, this one taken privately by an attendee with a 16mm camera. Silent with piano accompaniment.

Movie Lovers' Ratings & Reviews:
This DVD gives a wonderful and enticing look at the two New York World's Fairs, both in 1939 and 1964. Both were enormous in scope and vision and nothing like them will ever come our way again.
