Once Upon A Honeymoon

Here is a little film put out in 1956 (the same year that our ranch was built!) made by the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (yep...AT&T ) to promote color telephones as a decorator accessory in the home. If only the results of wishing were as instantaneous as they are in this film!





Yeah, that musical number/ dream sequence pretty much takes me to my happy place.

And speaking of happy places, make me as happy as can be and don't miss out on the chance to enter our drawing. Just visit my previous post to enter. And remember the contest ends on Wednesday...


Thanks y'all!

Until next time....modern colored phones in every room! what are we waiting for?...
x's and o's,

Looked like he was going a little Draper on us with all those cigarettes! :)

Eeeeee, that dream sequence! She had metal cabinets, AND a kitchen phone, AND Herman Miller lights in her bedroom! I need an angel to come a sprinkle "sparklies" on my house ASAP!!!!

Gower Champion directed this? OMG--he was such a fantastic dancer with wife Marge and directed many B'way musicals but guess he had to do stuff like this to pay the bills during the 50's! I love how the bedroom completely changed EXCEPT for those two double beds! Great stuff, Eartha!
