"Norman Bel Geddes Designs America accompanies a landmark exhibition exploring the career of Norman Bel Geddes (1893-1958), one of the 20th century's foremost theatrical and industrial designers. This companion volume explores Bel Geddes's life and career in comprehensive detail through nearly 100 projects, ranging from streamlined airplanes, ships, and cars, to stage sets, appliances, and much more. Both the exhibition and the book bring together never-before-seen drawings, models, photographs, and films drawn from the Ransom Center's Bel Geddes collection. He is perhaps best known for his Futurama display for the General Motors Highways and Horizons exhibit at the New York World's Fair of 1939-40, which to this day remains a useful model for city planning and design. The exhibition is curated by Donald Albrecht, who contributed the book's introduction and serves as its editor. In addition to Albrecht, who has written the introduction, twenty scholars have contributed essays. The exhibition I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America opens in September 2012 at the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, and will travel to the Museum of the City of New York."--Note de l'éditeur

Visionary stage designer, theater architect, and industrial designer Norman Bel Geddes shot hundreds of 16mm movies for research and pleasure. His amateur productions ranged from travelogues and science films to studies of humans in motion. Here Bel Geddes films Tilly Losch at the height of her Broadway career. Tilly Losch was an established dancer, choreographer, and actress who studied at the Vienna Imperial Opera ballet school. Max Reinhardt brought her to the U.S., where she enthralled audiences with her celebrated hand dance in musicals, ballets, and avant-garde performances. She made brief but memorable dance appearances in several Hollywood films. Norman Bel Geddes was a visionary stage designer, theater architect, and industrial designer. A pioneer in stage design and lighting, he was involved in more than one hundred plays, motion pictures, and other theatrical performances. As an industrial designer, he was identified with the popular streamline style of the 1930s. 16mm 1.37:1 black and white silent with music 20fps 7:02 minutes. Production Nutshell Pictures Corp.; new music by Rodney Sauer; courtesy Norman Bel Geddes Collection, Theatre Arts Collection, Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center, Edith Lutyens Bel Geddes Executrix.
