This famous film on urban development was made for exhibition at the New York World's Fair in 1939. A classic documentary-ahead of its time in its concern for quality of life-it is also a rich visual experience. With music by Aaron Copeland and text by Lewis Mumford, this film endures as one of the benchmarks of American documentary film.
