1933 Ford Promotional Film – “Rhapsody In Steel” (22 min)

The 1933-1934 World’s Fair was held in Chicago, and Ford pulled out all the stops to wow
the spectators with their new V-8 and cutting edge technology. The first portion of this lengthy
film covers the overall fair, which was spectacular in itself, then transitions into Ford’s various

1936 Lincoln Zephyr Promotional Film – “Streamlines Make Headlines” (17 min)
A man sees a new car traveling at great speed, and convinces the pilot of a nearby biplane to give him a
ride so he can see where this sleek new vehicle is going. While flying overhead, they’re amazed at the
high speed of the car. Eventually they catch up, and of course land right next it. The owner of the car
tells him all about the new Lincoln Zephyr, gives the  man a ride, and they talk about the quietness,
power, and handling. Very corny dialogue, but great footage, and a nice promotional film! (b&w)
