American Experience: Coney Island DVD
SKU ID #332402
More than half a century before the magic of Disneyland wooed amusement park visitors, the brilliant and eccentric attractions of Coney Island dominated the market. This engrossing documentary, produced and directed by Ric Burns, chronicles the introduction of the three major parks: Steeplechase Park, Luna Park, and Dreamland. Phillip Bosco narrates the film, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival before it was nationally broadcast on PBS. Includes rare archival photography, newsreel footage, interviews, and quotes of the day.
