The City

1939 Rated NR 2hr 12m

Fueled by American composer Aaron Copland's rousing score, this documentary produced for the 1939 New York World's Fair -- one of the largest world's fairs of all time -- presents the city as a living, breathing mass of people from all walks of life. In addition to representing one of Copland's finest film achievements, The City is often cited for its then-innovative blend of music, narration and cinematography.
