Magnum Opus

The marketing love-child of the union of General Motors and Frigidaire, this 1956 film features some of my favorite things—kitchen appliances, cars, architecture and fashion—in a sometimes-Fellini-esque tour de force of cross-promotion. I'm torn between the Golden Rocket by Oldsmobile and the rotating refrigerator...then there's the Christian Dior ensemble. Decisions, decisions.

The kitchen [which appears at about the 3:20 mark] is chock-full of labor-saving devices, making it a suitable post for this long holiday weekend. Enjoy it all!
