| "Steak, Steak, Steak! Can't We Ever Have Anything Else?"
In the world of 1954, this short subject informs us, we will all be tired of eating steak and teenagers will be asking their parents for a new airplane.

This star-studded film makes use of people on short and long-term contract players to offer a fanciful look forward to an idyllic future to sell war bonds. It offers three songs, including Bing Crosby singing the title song. While it's a straightforward effort without substance beyond its central message, the silliness of the opening and the real talent of the musical performers make this a short that fans of old movies will enjoy.
