Storyline

Sisters Janice and Carol are trying to decide which classes to take next semester. Janice wants to take home economics, which leaves Carol stunned. "Why home ec?" she asks. Carol proceeds to take her to Miss Jenkins, the home ec teacher, who explains the virtues of learning cooking, sewing, and shopping ("present-day textiles cannot be judged with confidence just by casual examination"). Janice is convinced that her choice is the right one. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

So you too can be a good, little obedient homemaker...
2 May 2002 | by (Irving, TX) – See all my reviews

This short film is quite dated. It talks about how 4 women at Iowa state college have a great time learning the ins and outs of home economics. The narrator is obscenely cheerful and nothing really stands up to the test of time. Especially bad is the football game where they show much of the marching band and very little of the game.
