Charles Guggenheim's film Monument to the Dream captures the story of construction of the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial Arch, which is still America's tallest national monument.

These stills from the making of the film - which was five years in production and challenged by unnerving heights - reveal an intimate portrait of one of this century's greatest civil engineering achievements.
