Movie Info

The filmmakers had nearly completed this video when the World Trade Center towers were attacked on September 11, 2001. They decided to have host Harry Smith create a new introduction and add new commentary that would address this terrible tragedy. The film's chief focus is on the architectural brilliance of Minoru Yamasake who designed the 1,300-foot twin towers, and the incredible construction efforts required to build them. The film still contains a construction manager's pre-September 11th comments that the towers would probably remain standing even if aircraft were flown straight into them.
