Very enjoyable!

Pitch People offers insight into a profession that oftentimes seems to blend into the wallpaper. I can't remember a time *without* seeing/hearing sales pitches for knives, mops, plastic containers, or other kitchen appliances that I didn't know I needed. Learning about the real skill and craftsmanship behind "the pitch" was a lot of fun, and this is a real gem of a movie. See it, and it'll make you smile.
