In this episode of New York: A Documentary Film, Ric Burns turns to the period when greed and wealth fueled an expanding metropolis, even as politics and poverty defined it. Now the spotlight shines on the growth, glamour, and grief of New York during America's giddy postwar "Gilded Age." Exploring the incomparable wealth of the robber barons and the unabashed corruption of political leaders, such as Tammany Hall boss William M. Tweed, the episode examines the era when the expansion of wealth and poverty - and the schism between them - built to a crescendo. The program ends as the city itself dramatically expands its boundaries, annexing Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island into a single massive metropolis - Greater New York

Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, George Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," and to the jazz compositions of Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong. Along the way, Harlem emerged as the undisputed capital of the African-American experience and the new media industries of advertising, radio, public relations, and magazine publishing found their homes in midtown Manhattan

Miss America( Visual )

4 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lisa Ades ̕film vertelt aan de hand van archiefmateriaal en interviews hoe de Miss America verkiezing in de loop der jaren van een kleinschalig festival uitgroeide tot een evenement van nationaal belang. Miljoenen volgden vanaf 1954 het spektakel via de televisie en evenzoveel meisjes droomden van het felbegeerde kroontje dat hun entree naar de wereld van geld en roem zou zijn. De Miss America verkiezing begon in de jaren twintig als een reclamestunt van Atlantic City, dat meer toeristen wilde trekken. Acht jongedames in knielange badpakken streden toen om de titel van Amerikas̕ mooiste. De lange lijst van winnaressen door de jaren heen geeft een prachtig inzicht in de geschiedenis van het vrouwbeeld in de VS. Aanvankelijk was het vooral de uiterlijke schoonheid die de waarde van de kandidaat bepaalde en tot in de jaren 6̕0 werd het idee dat de plaats van de vrouw thuis bij man en kinderen is door de kandidaten met verve uitgedragen. Later telden ook bijzondere talenten en hersens mee. Inmiddels is de Miss America organisatie de grootste verstrekker van studiebeurzen voor vrouwen
