Summary
In 1908, the first Model T rolled off the assembly line, quickly asserting itself as a dream machine that would take America down the highway and into the future. Bill Moyers shows how that future represented not only a new landscape bustling with high-speed transport and travel, but a new vision of ourselves. He uses film clips, photographs, music, and poetry to trace America's transformation into a mobile culture, complete with shopping malls, fast food, suburbia, carhops, drag strips, pollution, traffic jams, and-at the time this high-energy visual document was produced-a manufacturing-based economy.
