Elektro, The Amazing Westinghouse Moto-Man

...and other future-glimpses that blew the minds of The Middleton Family At The New York World's Fair.

BABS: Grandma, wouldn't it be wonderful if you could just hire a mechanical man like Elektro to do all the household chores??

GRANDMA: After all, my dear, isn't that what our Westinghouse appliances do?

I found a little gem of a movie where you can watch a live performance of Elektro during the New York world's fair back in 1939.
It is available in several formats, including a DVD quality file suitable to be burned to DVD.
It is a free site where you can get very olf footage for free.
