Chicago was built upon the aspirations of industry tycoons, ambitious politicians and shrewd advertising executives. Buoyed by the Great Migration, the Windy City soon became the epicenter of commercial production, spawning the modern advertising industry that continues to shape our behavior today. This playful doc, spanning the whole of the twentieth century, offers intriguing insights on the development and enduring impact of some of the most creative advertising minds in the world, while simultaneously exploring our national relationship with popular culture.
