Narrated by Gene Wilder, this documentary brings one of the world’s biggest extravaganzas— the Chicago World’s Fair—to life.  Viewers go back to 1893 through a cinematic visit to the Columbian Exposition, otherwise known as the White City.  This important international event was a major source of pride for the Chicago.  It also gave the nearly 28 million Fair visitors the opportunity to see amazing innovations up-close, like the Ferris Wheel, and enjoy new products including Cracker Jacks. Filmed in HD, this terrific film will take you on an adventure inside one of the most unforgettable events in American history.
