Color Footage Of 1934 World's Fair
I have seen amateur color footage from the 1939 World's Fair in New York on the Internet Archive, but Boing Boing pointed me to this commercially produced color short of the 1933 World's Fair in Chicago. Since most existing footage or photos from the 1930's are in black and white, it never occurs to some people that, yes, color existed before 1950. This short shows its commercial purpose when it becomes a Chrysler ad.
