  1. In a recent episode of the RetroDisney podcast they interviewed Ted Linhart, who collects documents on Disney parks and from various Worlds fairs including 1934, 1939 and 1964 Worlds Fairs. I thought you might be interested in his website. http://disney-park-historical-docs.tumblr.com/
  2. Let me apologize in advance to all of you who will love this movie. Experience tells me that I often stand alone with my opinions. Well, I was surely disappointed that the WF scenes weren't on screen longer than about 10 - 15 seconds... maybe less, but they looked great! Escorters maybe 2 - 3 seconds, total. Definite bummer. Sci-fi lovers will probably like it. It was one heck of a production. Too many fight scenes, each one lasting too long. I wanted to love this movie - it presented such a potentially great theme, but the incredibly over-done special effects overpowered the plot, in my opinion. Ridiculously complicated storyline. I must just be old. You know how there are some movies that you stop and watch every time you're channel surfing and stumble into them? This is one that don't think I ever need to see again except, of course, the first 5 minutes which contain the WF scenes. I so wish I could say I loved.... or even liked Tomorrowland, but disappointingly, I didn't. On Sunday, we went to see "Woman in Gold", the story about reclaiming a family painting that had been stolen by the Nazis. A much better movie and great storyline.
  3. I noticed their web site History.com mentions an item from the 1964 Worlds Fair was restored on the American Restoration show. Sounds like something those on this forum would be interested in seeing. The show is supposed to air tonight, 1/9/2013 at 10:00 PM ET. The History Channel.
