Reviews and Comments

From Len Preston :

I saw this short in Chicago at the Museum of Science and Industry when I was a kid. and I absolutely LOVED it. I enjoyed the vibrant animation and the booming voice of the narrator, which gave the short a feeling of grandness and importance. I would love to find this online or on DVD so I could see it again.

From Tom Wormstedt :

I've seen this short and it's spectacular. Actually, Walt Disney Educational Media and the American Iron & Steel Institute both officially offer this movie to view and download on the Pennsylvania State University's website.
