A CANOPIED KIOSK in the General
Cigar Hall of Magic at the Fair houses a unique sports picture,
which was shot as it is viewed, looking into action from
above as from a helicopter.
Visitors gaze down the sloping pit walls (bell-shaped) as
an overhead 16mm sound projector puts exciting action sequences
onto the six-foot circular screen. A most exciting sequence shows
the free-fall, sky-diving parachutists as they hurtle towards
Within the brief three-minutes, there's also indoor action
of billiards, boxing and golf and a "worm's eye" view
as the camera looks upward at a boxer skipping rope.

It was created from an idea developed by Gordon Auchincloss and
George Marck. Filming was by Gerald Productions, Inc., designed
by George Canata and under the direction of Jerry Auerbach. Technical
equipment was designed and built by Reevesound, under the supervision
of William Szabo. Another good Fair idea!
Above: you're watching the "big game" from a hovering
helicopter as you look down this picture well to see the "round"
movie produced for the General Cigar exhibit area by editors
of Sports Illustrated.
