Light's GOLDEN Jubilee
20 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My understanding of this film was that it was actually entitled Light's Golden Jubilee. It was part of an unprecedented nation-wide public relations event, put on by General Electric, and created by Edward Bernaise (widely considered throughout the field to be a sort of co-founder-- preceded by Ivy Lee-- of PR). The word "golden" was to be used to conjure up notions of wealth and prosperity in the minds of Americans.

And no, I don't watch this sort of thing for fun. I was in a PR class. I give it an 8 because it was well-made, and the event was a pretty big deal.
