Descriptive Entry:
This accession consists of audiovisual materials created during the production of "Place of Dreams;" "Men of Greatness, Feats of Daring;" "Reunions: Memories of an American Experience;" "To Fly!;" "Uncovering the Earth;" and "Berlin Airlift." "Place of Dreams" features a close-up look at the National Air and Space Museum's unparalleled collection, displays from the museum's exhibit halls, early newsfilm of flight's pioneers, and vintage photographs. It serves as both a history of modern flight's sung and unsung heroes and a celebration of the museum building and its collections. The hour-long television program is hosted by Cliff Robertson and aired on the Public Broadcasting Service on December 13, 1978, the 75th anniversary of manned flight. "Men of Greatness, Feats of Daring" is a 7-minute film that most likely accompanied an exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum.

"Reunions: Memories of an American Experience" features General James Harold Doolittle's early air racing experiences and visits with Gustav Tafel, homeopathic pharmaceutical manufacturer. Both men represent the creative drive and excellence of the American past. The 1979 production also features Burgess Meredith, Gerald R. Ford, Ronald Reagan, and Donald S. Lopez. "To Fly!" is a joint project between the IMAX Corporation and the National Air and Space Museum. It was first released in 1976 and then rereleased for its twentieth anniversary in 1996. "Uncovering the Earth" accompanied the National Air and Space Museum exhibit "Looking at Earth." A 5-minute video was first produced in 1986. In 1992, the film was redone and a 10-minute version replaced the original. "Berlin Airlift" was produced in 1984 and likely accompanied an exhibition. Also in this accession are materials related to the Air & Space Magazine. Materials in this accession include release prints, masters, interviews, and related materials. Also included is a press release for "Place of Dreams."
