Storyline

In this entry in Paramount's series of Unusal Occupations shorts, the first sequence depicts a man who operates his Southern plantation just as it was operated a century before (minus the slaves, of course), and then visits Dr. Seuss, when he was still known primarily as an illustrator, to take a look at his collection of beaks, bills and horns (from birds and animals)which he uses to make models of the strange animals he creates in his professional work. Then a look at how airlines select stewardess/hostess (young, pretty and shapely), and ends up with a champion speed-typist demonstrating some of his speed-enhancing techniques.
