Shortly before the end of the Second World War, Army-Navy Screen Magazine (a newsreel version of what would later be called a television news magazine) began a new series on the world of tomorrow to be faced by soon-to-be veterans. The first installment was called "Tomorrow Television," and while most of it is not very interesting—at least from an entertainment standpoint—the opening sequence features shots of what I think must be the G.M. Futurama from the World's Fair of 1939-40, but definitely not from the filmed version of that most popular fair venue.
