Thanks.

The few seconds of the Avis antique car ride were about the most I remember seeing in movies. Don't see much of Chrysler's assembly line ride either.

Films like this are fun for showing things that still photos don't, like the air cleaner on the Chrysler Giant Car rotating. I had forgotten about that until I spotted it in another film, then this one today.

This is the first time I've seen the lights in action on the roof of the Carousel of Progress.

Interesting choice of vantage point for NYSP (around 2:49) - Astral Fountain on right, but view blocked by the booths in front. Are those actually phone booths, or a 3-part something else?

I believe they were souvenir stands.
