The American Look

American design and styling at the height of capitalistic, consumeristic splendor. A promotional movie produced by Chevrolet in 1958 which celebrates American Design, stylists and the American spirit of post-war excess. Great, nostalgic settings for anyone who grew up wealthy in California. Me, I don't recognize my childhood in any of these scenes, but apparently all of this was going on somewhere in the world while I was living in a rented house in Beechview with my parents and four brothers.
