Produced in 1970 for WNBC, You Get What You Pay For is a film portrait of one of the country's first enclosed shopping malls. It documents the mall and its impact on the surrounding community as it notes the changes that it has brought about in the patterns of suburban life, particularly among young people. It depicts with wit and humor our preoccupation with shopping and buying, as it notes the evolution of the American marketplace.Finally, it offers a contrast between the mass merchandising and technological appeal of a packaged society and that of a less industrialized, less pressured, more natural life. While we glimpse children growing up in a free and idyllic setting the film concludes with the words of the Wordsworth sonnet, "The World Is Too Much With Us"
