A young housewife gets advice on the variety of meat dishes that she can prepare for her husband's dinner.
13 March 2006 | by jmedmontonSee all my reviews

This short (about 20 minutes) was a promotional film for the American meat industry. The then-unknown Alan Ladd (whose appearance, if I recall correctly, was uncredited--like the rest of the cast) was one of the supporting players. I don't know who starred as the housewife, but I remember her as an attractive feminine blonde, typical of that era. The script isn't exactly subtle, but that's to be expected from a promotional film. I don't remember the recipes being very fancy--just a wide variety of meals that a middle-class housewife would be able to prepare.

This movie isn't exactly The Maltese Falcon, but it might make you hungry (if not necessarily romantic).

The Provincial Archives of Alberta has a copy of this film in their collection and showed it at their annual film night a few years ago.
