Multi Image Expo'67 Oscar Winner Holds Up Solidly
1 July 2003 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

A Place To Stand stands the test of time due to its intelligent use of split screen images, some stunning photography and an unforgettable theme song....the only element that needs primping is the narrative, which has the antiseptic feel of a bureaucratic rubber stamp (in this case, the Ontario Tourist Board). This oscar winner delighted Expo '67 and the sequel in '68 "Man And His World" in Montreal and is totally obscure today. Picked up a vhs wide-screen copy for personal use from a friend in the business and was thrilled as any World's Fair film completist must be. As the closing theme lyrics cheerlead "Give us a place to stand, and a place to grow, and we will build Ontario!!!!" ***1/2
