For MR AND MRS SMITH (1941), starring Carole Lombard and Robert
Montgomery, director Alfred Hitchcock took advantage of the New York
World's Fair to film the memorable scene in which Lombard and Gene
Raymond go on the ascension wheel which breaks down, stranding them in a
downpour.  This is 'LIFE', the scene seems to say - the sign in
question, in the background, is actually the first part of a Life Savers

- Ken Mogg (author of the uncut UK edition of 'The Alfred Hitchcock
Story' - I disown the cut and 'simplified' US version).
