Food for America (ca 1941)
This Kodachrome film is a travelogue of epic length in which the camera rarely leaves the factory floor. Mrs. Harwood, a lady of a certain social position, decides to research her women’s club presentation on the American dairy industry by visiting Meadow Gold facilities across the country. Assisted by supportive company executives and a host of hospitable plant managers, she (and we) learn a great deal about the operations of the dairy industry and its importance in feeding forty million American families every day.
