My father-in-law turns 60 today. As a present, we made him a video, in which my kids try to contemplate what life was like in 1950:
A few things to notice:
I recently took Jeffrey to a special viewing of the Charlie Chaplin film Shoulder Arms. Hence, his description of film in 1950 is of a silent film.
Eleanor is under the impression that life in 1950 is more like life in 1850.
Poor William — look at what happens to him right around 0:20. I’ve never seen such a patient, mellow kid.
