may 1958 an eight minute special – MAGIC HIGHWAY U.S.A. – premiered in the DISNEYLAND tv-show, it was directed by WARD KIMBALL. like common in those days and like in OUR FRIEND THE ATOM, it showed a very optimistic future of the american street- and freeway-system. at that time it was ‘science-fiction’, today we laugh. so don’t look at it for the content. I always liked the style of the backgrounds though, very close to architectural renderings. following are some stills and recreated longer pans.
