Trivia

This film was one of the best experiences at the New York World's Fair. It was shown on three screens that were side by side, with a small separation between them, (unlike Cinerama which slightly overlapped the images.) Within minutes, most viewers stopped noticing the separations, but took in the entire 3-screen wide image as if it was one. The best part of the film by far was the "soapbox derby" go-cart run down a steep hill. The camera presented a "driver's point-of-view" of the entire run. As it turned right and left following the curves of the street, the entire audience would lean right and left accordingly. See more »
