Classic Line: "Girls don't go to Motoramas dressed in a pair of pink pajamas."

Trivia: Attendance for the 1956 Motorama in New York City was over two million people.

Here's what Business Screen magazine wrote about this short film in 1957: "Because of the widespread interest in Motorama, General Motors makes an annual film which, although not an exact factual record of the show, does capture its flavor, style, and theme. Design For Dreaming, this year's Motorama film, is a dancing and singing fantasy that introduces the beautiful cars through the eyes of cute Thelma Tadlock, a ballerina whose twinkling toes carry the audience from Chevrolet to Cadillacland, and to the far out reaches of the highways of tomorrow."

The "Kitchen of Tomorrow" by Frigidaire, a division of General Motors, was built in 1954. It was also featured in 1957's Frigidaire Finale and 1958's American Look.

THELMA "TAD" TADLOCK appeared in another General Motors short, 1961's A Touch of Magic which had the futuristic couple hosting a dinner party. Tadlock appeared on Broadway in Pal Joey (1952) and Me and Juliet (1953), but apparently did not appear in feature films.

Trivia: Born Tom Sanders in Russia, British actor TOM CONWAY (1904-1967) was the look-alike brother of actor George Sanders. Taking over the role from his brother, he appeared in nine movies as the private eye character "The Falcon". Other of Conway's films include: 1940-Sky Murder; 1941-Tarzan's Secret Treasure; 1942's Cat People; Mrs. Miniver; 1943-I Walked with a Zombie; 1948-One Touch of Venus; 1951-Bride of the Gorilla; and 1956's 808-THE SHE-CREATURE.

It's hard to believe that the craggy-faced FRANCIS X. BUSHMAN (1883-1966) in this movie was once adorned by film fans for his handsomeness and physique. He made many silent films, and was known as "The Profile." His handsome face can be seen in 1929's Ben Hur. The craggy one can be seen again in another MSTed sci-fi turkey, 902-THE PHANTOM PLANET.
