The American Look
A fascinating look into the world of design in the late 1950s. If you are only going to watch one, watch Part III. It features a somewhat staged development of the 1959 Chevrolet with many scenes inside Styling in the late 1950’s. There are scenes at the end showing both the Firebird I and Firebird II in motion. A must see.
“In appreciation of the Stylists of America who work in lines, forms, and textures, and colors to give us beauty, charm and elegance in the conveniences, comforts, and necessities of our daily living. As a Tribute to the Men and Women who Design. The definitive Populuxe film on 1950s automotive, industrial, interior and architectural design.” Sponsored by Chevrolet Division, General Motors Corporation. From Archive.org. Length: 08:11
