Philip A. Medicus films
Philip Medicus filmed the Fair in color on Kodachrome. These films can be found on YouTube and on the Internet Archives. There are a total of 17 of the Medicus films which I will add to both my YouTube channel and here on the World's Fair Website.
Presented here is the first of the seventeen, Reel 1 - Part 1.
This first installment starts off with the following sentiment:
Around the corner form a $24 island is a meadow that cost $155,000,000. Flags and banners are its symbols, plaster and cement its breast and backbone. It teems with showmanship but shows surprising beauty. It shouts Tomorrow while it echoes Yesterday. Its splendors are unending, its treasures many. Its a show of shows, where some with blue blood and millions with red blood, gasp and gape. It is called the New York World's Fair.
