Westinghouse claims its electric appliances "freed women from the drudgery of housework." The first half involves a dream salesman at work; the second half is focused on the "Spring Sales Event," called "Freedomland."
Right here is a trippy exercise in "What the hell was that?!"
Feature length Westinghouse commercial that somehow managed to corral real stars as the voice of its various appliances! James Mason is a fridge!....Lucille Ball a washing machine!...Maureen O'Sullivan a dishwasher!....and on and on. If that weren't odd enough the salesman Ellis of the title is surrounded by mannequins come to life including Alan Hale, Jr. who even a dozen years before Gilligan's Island is unmistakably The Skipper. Then it all ends with a lavish musical number extolling the wonders of Westinghouse!!!
A very strange viewing experience all in 50's moderne furnishings and Technicolor!
