Mrs. Modern Shopper

A woman described in the narration as "Mrs. Modern Shopper" is in her kitchen. She empties a bag of groceries, puts her frozen orange juice away in the freezer compartment of her fridge, and then goes to the sink and makes orange juice. She's the ideal 1950 housewife in the ideal middle class kitchen. Campy, frozen food industry propaganda. Wonderful Kodachrome nostalgia. See contrasting footage of the foolish house wife who buys fresh oranges.
