Living and the Battle of the Centuries
This drama - sponsored by Westinghouse - features a typical middle
class family from the midwest and examines the ideas of consumption
and capitalism. The film shows the contributions of free enterprise
and technology and the benefits that they give to modern living.
The drama comes in as the film contrasts the ideas and goodness
of capitalism against the anti progressive message of Marxism.
Intertwined within the story is an excellent tour of the marvels
on display in the Westinghouse building in the 1939 New York World's
fair. It makes for an excellent full color tour of this famous portion
of the fair.
This film was produced in 1939 by Audio Productions Inc. and has
a runtime of 55 minutes
