My Wife…well…to put it kindly, suggested that I mow the lawn today. Besides peeling eggs I truly cannot think of a task that I despise more in my life, but then I recalled this propaganda film that happened to be produced by the National Clean Up – Paint Up – Fix Up Bureau…which just so happened to be the major paint companies of the time, which stated that your house was more likely to survive an atomic strike if it was well kept and freshly painted. Wait, what?
By the way, this short was “Selected for the 2002 National Film Registry of “artistically, culturally, and socially significant” films.”
