Intriguing and overlooked

I believe this film was a companion to a Smithsonian exhibit/road show,
and based upon the exhibit book by the same name. It has some great
footage from 20th century sci-fi films, and magazines. The theme
follows how the concept of "the world of tomorrow" changed through the
events of the century: World War, Depression, World War, post-war
industrial boom, tumultuous Sixties, etc. The visions of the future by
artists, industrial designers, inventors, and consumer product mavens
tells more than you'd think about the society at the moment.
Wish I could find this on DVD -- and get the book --as they are quite
memorable, and rather unique.
