"The World of Tomorrow" and the "Secret Goal" of Science Fiction.
Telotte, J. P.
Journal of Film and Video, v45 n1 p27-39 Spr 1993
Looks at "The World of Tomorrow" (a 1984 documentary film of the 1939 New York World's Fair) as a gloss on the cultural tendency to sell the pleasures of technology while deferring questions about its nature. Notes that the film views the link between pleasure and technology that science fiction films variously exploit. (RS)
