The tubes crossing over isn't circled but is also an obvious similarity.

Hmm... the old picture is from the music video to queens radio gaga....

The futurama title screen bares some similarities....

just a small notice...     big grin

It looks like a grab out of a 1930's era science fiction movie.
Does anyone know where the first image comes from originally?    confused

Perhaps we could find a better image from a source closer to the original.

[Edit:]
I found this on YouTube.

Unless I'm greatly mistaken, it is Fritz Lang's 1927 silent epic "Metropolis."

I've not yet found a suitable grab.

[Edit2:]
Found one:

"Metropolis" from late 1920s or early 1930s IIRC.

Edit: it's not unrealistic to assume the 1939 World's Fair exhibition by GM was inspired by the footage of that movie.

Edit edit: It's absolutely mindblowing what Google can do...

Good find Teral!  wink

I believe HeyBurt's image, while of much lower resolution, takes place several moments before any of the images you or I found.

In Heyburt's picture the plane in the yellow circle has just passed the edge of the building, while in the rest, it's moved much further to the left... which would tend to poke holes in the similarities HeyBurt is trying to draw...

@ HeyBurt:
Sorry 'Burt.  hmpf

In the meanwhile, I've found another image sans planes- er... aeroplanes, that you might use to draw more similarities:



I have too much free time...  roll eyes

Yeh Metropolis, the roots to every science-fiction movie/series in the modern days. Metropolis is a dystrophy, and it amazingly booring ^^ people back in the 20's and 30's could not make good movies. . . At all .

Metropolis is awesome. You just have no taste.

And I think you mean it's dystopian, not a dystrophy.

Metropolis was a great movie.  I see the similarities between, the Radio Ga Ga video, and the scenes from Metropolis.   And people back in the 20's and 30's actually have made good movies.  I rest my case.
