Our Part in Conservation (1959)
McGraw-Hill original shows us what conservation is all about through the adventures of a classic fab fifties nuclear family! This family is truly the "American Dream" family, as they are fashionable (check out mom's heart-shaped glasses and scarves!), drive around all day in a fabulous convertible, and have wholesome meals each and every day! Move over, Cleavers! This family won't be caught dead by the conservation police! A wonderful look at the post-war conservation efforts of families in the fifties!
