Tupperware! tells the remarkable story of Earl Silas Tupper, an ambitious but reclusive small-town inventor, and Brownie Wise, the self-taught sales-woman who built him an empire out of bowls that burped. Brownie was an intuitive marketing genius who trained a small army of Tupperware Ladies to put on Tupperware parties in living rooms across America in the 1950s. She rewarded her sales force with minks and modern appliances at extravagant annual jubilees which the company filmed. her saleswomen earned thousands, even millions, selling Tupperware. And the experience changed their lives. Written by Laurie Kahn

I've got that tupper-feeling, all in my head.....
2 November 2003 | by crowdsurferSee all my reviews

When I first heard of this film , I thought to myself "a film about Tupperware? That's way can this be entertaining!" But I went and saw it at my schools film festival anyway! One of the reasons was because Robin, one of the co-producers, was here promoting the film and always ready to field any questions we posed to her.

Now, after having seen it, I have to say: GO SEE TUPPERWARE! Although the song will get stuck in your head for at least a couple of days, it is an immensely enjoyable film, comprised almost completely of home movie footage from the 50's, which is what gives it such a warm and personal feel. I learned things about Tupperware I didn't know I wanted to learn, and was very entertained in the process.

If this Film comes to a festival near you, go see it, if you can't make it, then tune in to PBS on February 9th 2004 and enjoy! If you ever read this, keep up the good work Robin!
