Sweet, Funny, Evocative Documentary About The Sixties.
16 August 2008 | by criticman2000See all my reviews

"Leisurama" is the story of a little pre-fabricated house, stocked with everything a person could need (except light bulbs)to walk in and begin a happy life, which started out at the 1964 NY World's Fair, and was eventually sold at Macy's! Along the way, you'll find out about the cold war, the World's Fair, the struggles of architects to have their project taken seriously and the fates of those homeowners who invested in a Leisurama home. This is fascinating stuff-- it includes lots of vintage footage and tidbit such as the tale of a woman who went to Macy's to buy a bra and came back with a house. There's plenty to learn here, and if you already knew about this stuff, the film is still breezy, fast-paced and amusing. It's being shown currently on PBS, and I think it's terrific viewing.
