"Gateway to the Southern Americas"
19 min. Color, Sound, c. 1938. Pan American Airways film production.
An unusual approach for a film from this time, "Gateway" provides a comprehensive view of many of the functions at Pan Am's most important international terminal in the late 1930s. From passenger service to nuts-and-bolts procedures relating to maintenance and flight operations, we get a close up view of Miami's impressive Art Deco seaplane base at Dinner Key .
