This article shows a short public information film from 1961, from the University of Oklahoma. The author of the post describes it as “A worrying little public information film from 1961 equating household accidents with the apparently dubious mental health of the housewives of the era”. But the final message to housewives is: “Beware of Boredom.”
I have a very bad feeling it may actually be trying to say that if housewives don’t keep themselves busy taking care of the husband and kids, they will become bored, and boredom will make them deranged, and eventually their insanity will lead them to a life-threatening accident.
The husband is a useless ass, by the way. At first I thought maybe the film was offering sympathy to housewives for some of the mentally deficient husbands they have to put up with, but she’s soundly punished by the end for standing up to him.
