Narrated by actor, Gene Wilder, EXPO - Magic of the White City explores the world of 1893 through a cinematic visit to Chicago's Columbian Exposition. Against the backdrop of 1893's troubles with workers' rights, prejudice, discrimination and corruption, the World's Columbian Exposition casts a brief ray of hope for the future of humanity. Many of the world's greatest achievements in art, architecture, science, technology and culture are unveiled there. The grounds were designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, famous for his design of New York City's Central Park, and constructed under the supervision of famed Chicago architect Daniel Burnham. On opening day of the fair, President Grover Cleveland depressed a golden telegraph key, which sent the first courses of electricity throughout the Fair powering fountains, machines, electric railways and thousands of lights. It was the first use of electricity on such a massive scale. The Chicago World's Fair was an engineering marvel. Nearly 28 million visited the "White City," which inspires future innovators like Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Frank Lloyd Wright. Filmed in High-Definition, EXPO - Magic of the White City immerses viewers in one of the world's biggest extravaganzas and one of the most unforgettable events in American history. DVD. Running time: 116 minutes.
