  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A short trailer film encouraging women to join the workforce to help the economy.

    CU man's legs - he is wearing shoes and socks with sock suspenders. CU joint of raw meat. CU old armchair. CU model soldier. CU man's legs as before. People in voice over say 'We want more everything!"

    Trousers appear on the man's legs. The joint gets bigger. The chair is replaced with a new one. The single toy soldier is joined by 20 more. This will only happen the voice of authority tells us if more women join the workforce.

    CU of posters encouraging women to work. VS of working women - some with their wages.

    Repeat of the sequence of growing goods. People are warned that it won't be quick but women are needed to work.
