"EXPO - Magic of the White City" Ranks #1 Available Documentary on Amazon.com on Day of Release

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 14, 2005 -- 22 years after the great Chicago fire of 1871 nearly destroys the city, Chicago rebounds with the greatest World's Fair ever held. Inecom Entertainment Company's new DVD, "EXPO - Magic of the White City," has ranked -- since its release yesterday -- as the #1 best-selling available documentary through the Amazon.com website sales service.

"EXPO - Magic of the White City" had its world premiere screening last night at Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry. This historic structure built for the World's Fair was originally known as the Palace of Fine Arts, and is the only remaining building from the Columbian Exposition.

The Fair debuted the Ferris Wheel, Cracker Jack®, Aunt Jemima® and multitudes of other new things that we live with today, and inspired Henry Ford, Walt Disney and Frank Lloyd Wright. Dubbed "The White City," the Exposition was visited by 28 million people when the American population was only about 68 million. It was built to rival and exceed the Paris World's Fair of 1889, where the Eiffel Tower debuted.

Narrated by Gene Wilder, "EXPO - Magic of the White City" was filmed in High Definition and is available at national retail outlets.
