Basically a useless documentary.
28 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

When I was 11 years old I went to the 1964 World's Fair. I thought this documentary would be a nostalgic look back on those times and my visit to the fair. It was not. What it was was a big waste of my time. I was very disappointed.

Most of the footage was of people walking around. Very little film footage or info on the attractions. Too many interviews of local fair goers whose experiences would be totally different from visitors who traveled long distances and could not go weekly. We find out what the locals thought about the fair, but what did the visitors from around the world think of it? After all it was a World Fair. Sound and picture quality were poor too.
