Earl Tupper's line of plastic, sealable units not only revolutionized food storage but provided a source of revenue for women who hosted Tupperware parties. The long running American Experience documentary series on PBS is a remarkable series that showcases many facets of our culture, and there are times of course when I personally must take one of their entries and realize that it is not geared towards me. "Tupperware!" is one of these entries. I did not find the story of Tupperware to be at all interesting but again I am not the demographic this film is aiming at.
