When our society went from “buying to replace” to “buy to be happy”, the effect snowballed over the decades with the force needed to keep from experiencing a real existential crisis.
Once Upon a Honeymoon is a 1956 musical sponsored film about a couple wishing for a new home. It starts off with a group of angels who decide to help a couple have a honeymoon. The husband (Jeff) tries to write a song, while the wife (Mary) daydreams about a new home, and imagines what it would be like to have the latest household products with the help of the angel. The angel then helps the man come up with a new song called “A Castle in the Sky”.
The film was directed by Gower Champion, and starred Virginia Gibson, Ward Ellis, Alan Mowbray, Chick Chandler, Veronica Pataky and Russell Hicks. In recent years the film has gained a small following, after it was mocked on the show Mystery Science Theater 3000. It is in the public domain.
