  1. I think the man to the right of Tik-Tok in the first picture is holding sunglasses.
  2. When I started working on the Macy's parade in the 1990s, a lot of the balloons still came from Akron. It's apparently the center of the world for lighter-than-air flying things.
  3. Who doesn't like a good fireworks show?

    If I had one of those hats, I'd wear it all the damn time
  4. Italia '61

    It doesn't show up in http://www.expomuseum.com/1949-1976/ which is odd, since I thought it had all BIE expos. Though it does have a wikipedia page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Expo_61
  5. What if you threw a party and nobody came?

    Quick, let's head over to Progressland and the Vatican pavilion!
  6. Opening day from the air

    Were any members of the design board also associated with the 1936 film version of "Things to Come?" A few of the buildings seem like were designed by the same people.
  7. World's Fare Celebration

    Yeah, I'd really like them to do this in the park itself, like some of the WF events from the past few years where they had foot trucks along the paths. We need more people to come in to see the park, and not just think of it as overflow parking for the US Open.
  8. MadMen

    I think they tried to minimize locations overall. There's a later episode where Don takes the kids to Disneyland, but we never see the Park, just a hotel room.
  9. Does anyone know what happened to Tik-Tok after the fair? Also, I'd like to know where has that boy been? I mean, his shirt's untucked, his pants are dirty - he looks like he's been in a fight. Though from the expression on his face, I'd speculate he won. Just wait 'til his father gets home
  10. It's weird that cars stopped becoming "antiques" sometime in the 1970s. People don't exhibit cars from the 1980s and 1990s now at car shows, even though they're as old as 1950s cars were in the 1980s.
  11. Panorama Featured in WONDERSTRUCK

    It's available on Amazon if you want to watch it at home. You can watch it for free if you're a Prime member https://www.amazon.com/Wonderstruck-Amazon-Original-Julianne-Moore/dp/B075ZH16LW/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1517884944&sr=8-2&keywords=wonderstruck
  12. The film shown at Kodak was Saul Bass' "The Searching Eye" http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0058558/ I'd imagine those T-bars were the predecessor to the "lean rails" that are in the CircleVision theaters at Epcot.
  13. I've read elsewhere that some of the footage from Canada 67 is used in the O! Canada film shown at Epcot now.
  14. I feel link so much effort was put into the design of the pavilion itself, some of the fixtures for programs were done as an afterthought or on a minimal budget.
  15. I'd be willing to buy 9 TVs and set this up in my house.
