| How do we live without GE products?
Although Bette Davis and Dick Powell never made a feature film together they are husband and wife in this short subject which is an almost quarter of an hour commercial for the latest products from General Electric. Reason enough to see this short subject.

There's an opening in Powell's office about to happen and boss Warren William sees Powell showing pictures and bragging about how his summer place on a lake is really modernizing. Powell invites William and his wife Ruth Donnelly for a weekend and they spend it bragging on the modern marvels GE is bringing to their home. Even the lake is illuminated with GE floodlights, the better for night fishing.

Curiously enough the actor most identified with GE had not yet been signed by Warner Brothers. Ronald Reagan was 3 years away from his studio contract. If he and the brothers Warner only knew.
