As you all know, I have a serious thing for cross-century voyeurism. Probably the only thing I like more than this is seeing how a period is portrayed within another period (for instance, Thoroughly Modern Millie, the 20s done in the 60s). What I like even better than this is seeing what people of the past thought the future would be like:

My favorite moment? 1:04: "Ooh, swish!"

It's a bit spooky, really, when past predictions hit so close to home. It's one thing to watch the Jetsons and wonder how they ever came up with those sorts of things, but another thing entirely to see near-accurate predictions.

Hope you liked it as much as I did,
Nostalgically Yours
