American Propaganda Film
10 January 2004 | by (Virginia) – See all my reviews

Classic educational film about a family that can't afford to have Turkey, and how a family learns to accept that and appreciate what they have. As with the early educational films, this one's cheesy and pretty pointless, and of course reminds the little children watching that the United States is a wonderful country, and that we should be thankful for living in this country (it's basically just a propaganda film).

Lots of use of words such as "gee," and "golly."
