Selling The Suburbs
Ejaz | 05/05/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's funny to think that there was a time when almost everyone lived in cities and the suburbs did not exist yet. Yet, aparently in the 1940s and 1950s you had to choose between living in a city or on a farm.

That's the message here in these films that actually had to explain to people what a suburb was. Teh whole gimic here in these ads is to convince people that they will get killed if they stay in the city but will have a good life if they just buy a house in a development.

The lengths these ads go to to sell suburbia is incredible when you consider that most people want to live there now.

I had no idea until I saw this film that Levitown was a created community."
