Click the arrow to watch the film. Video source: Jeff Quitney YouTube channel.

This week's Retro Saturday feature is a 1940 promotional film by General Motors titled To New Horizons. It's about the GM Futurama attraction at the 1939 New York World's Fair.

(Yes, the animated comedy Futurama was named after the 1939 attraction.)

Futurama attempted to predict what the world would look like in 1960.

Did they get it right? Watch the film!
