Cold War Era Propaganda Film, 1949

This 1949 movie is designed to convince Americans the capitalist system is superior to all others in the world. Workers make enough money to buy products, have leisure time, and save money. Labor is the key to making the American way possible for all in the U.S. It is an interesting look at the simplistic ideas of the Cold War Era.

Please note, there is a racist referral to Chinese workers as “coolies” at around the 4 minute mark.
