00:36:44:13 INT, (no windows), COL, SOUND, retro futuristic interior, strange image on back of wall of a tree which grows different fruit on each branch. A woman wearing lycra green jumpsuit with clear plastic, polythene strips over chest and hips, enters room smiling. VO ‘as for life in the space age the appliance industry will continue its life long love affair with you, the American homemaker.’ Woman walks up to mirrored wall and checks her cropped red hair. Man sits with his back to camera, at kitchen table, watches woman walk to work surface, she nods for him to follow, he does so. Woman waves her hand through air and a low cabinet opens to reveal an appliance, oven? VO ‘they’ll be new departures that herald even more exciting adventures in homemaking, new freedom from kitchen chores, new horizons in food preparation and home laundry care.’ Woman waves hand over wall with mirrors and the bottom, wooden fronted cabinets slide open and forward to reveal surfaces with pots and pans on, and a kitchen sink, they walk together along surface. Labour saving, gadgets.
00:37:24:05 INT, view of kitchen interior over central circular table towards couple standing in front of newly revealed surfaces. Woman presses her finger on the mirror and a tiered stand rises out of the middle of the central table, the man and woman smile broadly. They approach the table and observe plates stacked on the lowest level, and decorative centre-piece on the top. Woman presses the mirror again and the tiers descend. Woman presses again on the glass and a light goes on behind the mirrored surface, silhouetting kitchen utensils. Zoom in on womans face who is smiling and cheerfully explaining the wonders of this technology to the man. VO ‘innovations that will continue to offer more quality, value, safety, and versatility for your appliance dollars but tomorrow’s promises have their roots in today.’
00:37:49:00 INT, COL, modern/contemporary kitchen set inside studio. Red/brown wooden kitchen units, white counter tops, woman hoovers the yellow linoleum floor. VO ‘the world we live in, here, now, where its at, your home is what you make it and the appliance industry offering products you can buy with confidence, stands ready to help you make it better, more convenient, more economical, more satisfying than ever before.’
