RetroRewind – 1950: Let’s Make a Sandwich

A mother and daughter (named Sally Gasco, as in Gas Company) work in the kitchen to make tuna rarebit sandwiches, yet the two boys don’t eat sandwiches at all: they are still eating a hot dog and a hamburger at the end. No recipes are provided other than a cube of butter, some cheese, etc.

Here’s a real recipe for Tuna Rarebit.

A colorized version of this film can be seen on YouTube.

Produced by Simmel-Meservey in collaboration with the American Gas Association. Black and white. 4 minutes, 12 seconds in length.
