Impressions of Expo 67

This movie was produced in 1967 by the National Film Board of Canada.



In my opinion, it is one of the best video documents of Expo. It is only 8 minutes long, but it really captures the mood of this great event...

Wow!!! This is a very good film on Expo 67!... I wish I could go back in time and relive all this (I was born in 68)!

I discovered your site last week, and I really like it.

Continuez votre excellent travail!!

I am VERY impressed with your collection. As a frequent visitor to Montreal I am fascinated with anything historically related to the area. EXPO peaks my interest for a number of reasons… among them; I was 9 years old at the New York World’s Fair but missed EXPO and I remember being absolutely enamored with Habitat ‘67.
As I walk on the EXPO islands or sit at home here in Florida, I harbor a disappointment that nearly all the buildings were dismantled/destroyed and continue to wonder how it all looked. This video, especially the overhead segments, help put it in perspective. Keep up the good work. There are folks out here lovin’ it!

One of my first memories is of ascending the escalator in the American Pavilion. I would have been about 2.
This is an amazing document.. is there more? Where are the other Expo archives???
I also remember sitting in my classroom in the seventies in NDG and seeing the plume of smoke from the dome burning down, i think there was a principal's announcement...a sad day...and in retrospect an unbelievable catastrophe...what if the eiffel tower collapsed? it's that sad...yes and now the whole thing is a vestige...to compensate i'm even developing fondness for the crumbling Olympic tower...
