And Thanksgiving's creeping up, too

Let’s Talk TurkeyOne of many great films made by the Centron folks in Lawrence, Kansas, A Day of Thanksgiving (1951) tells the story of a working-class family who can’t afford a holiday turkey dinner. Instead of stuffing themselves, they decide to think about what they’re thankful for. Unlike most Cold War films, this one doesn’t link freedom and happiness with the pursuit of material gain.

For more practical advice, cruise over to Let’s Talk Turkey (also 1951), which is full of kitchen suggestions that the Internet Archive does not endorse.
