I know a lot of my friends would appreciate this documentary "Riding The Rails." During the Hoover era, teenagers and young adults would turn to the Salvation Army as their only means of survival in the city- and it wasn't ironic. Your daily dose of genuine outsider culture. Some willingly outsiders and others forced by economic circumstances.
Tupperwear's premiere influence on American women and work post World War II. According to this episode's description, it re-examines assumptions about American culture in the 1950's. I guess this also means that any assumption you had of people not knowing how to party back then, is completely false. This lengthy ( but totally interesting) documentary about Tupperwear and it's largely female sales force is a unique look at women's entrepreneurial roles during the post-war economic boom. More specifically, the pioneer role of Brownie Wise and how time would soon forget her. Until now. This documentary also makes you realize how much society has come along so that today women can be their own breadwinners.
