TUPPERWARE! follows the rise of reclusive inventor Earl Tupper's plastic bowls to icon status more than 40 years ago, thanks to the savvy marketing skills of a single young mother, Brownie Wise. The duo's unlikely partnership not only changed the way Americans stored food, but created the phenomenon of thousands of women making money by selling products from their living rooms.

Interesting documentary.
30 October 2003 | by (Savannah) – See all my reviews

I just saw this film at the SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) Film Festival and I found it to be an interesting testament to '50s society and women's social status in that period. The interviews are great (some hilarious) and the stock footage is fascinating enough to make the humble subject of the history of Tupperware an enjoyable watch. The director answered questions after the screening and she is definitely a documentary master.
