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

The film, which was five years in production and challenged by unnerving heights, traces the adventure of the Arch's evolution, from the early concepts on the drawing board to the fabrication of its stainless steel sections and the triumphant placement.  Through the words of the master architect, Eero Saarinen, the film reveals an intimate portrait of one of this century's greatest civil engineering achievements.
