Sharing Work at Home (1949)

  • The Taylor family — Mom, Dad, Howard and Martha — live in a messy house and, what’s worse, they don’t seem to care. But Martha has culled some modern ideas from her home economics textbook and the Taylor renaissance is about to begin. “General housekeeping is made much easier if each person picks up after himself,” Martha reads to Howard; he thinks for a moment and responds, “Hey, sis…maybe we should get organized!” As anyone familiar with postwar Coronet films knows, “get organized” is an unresistable rallying cry. Soon, the Taylors are making neat, handwritten lists for everything, and smiling so broadly that it must hurt. “Here! It’s all organized!” cries Howard as he holds aloft yet another list. “That’s the idea! Each of us picks up after himself!” echoes Dad. In less time than it takes to pull a tally sheet out of the Job Jar, the Taylors have become “a far happier and better family.” “This is more than just a story of wallpaper and slipcovers,” the narrator proclaims. “It’s a story of improvement in the Taylors themselves!”
