108513. Ask Doctor Eddy. December 16, 1946. WOR, New York City. Sponsored by: American Institute of Food Products, Bulova (local). Dr. Eddy speaks about, "vitamin fortification." While in fact a quiz show, there are so many products advertised and sometimes, just mentioned, that it sounds more like a shopping list. Even Dr. Eddy reads a commercial for baked beans. The first question is, "Does margarine equal butter in caloric value?" When asked, "What are canapes?" one contestant answers, "They're a building extension!" When one of the contestants is asked a question about coffee, she says she never touches the stuff! Henry Gladstone takes it in his stride. Some of the products advertised are: Nucoa margarine, Mrs. Grass' Soups, Bilt-Rite baby carriages, College Inn Tomato Juice Cocktail, Sutho Soothing Suds (which sounds more like a product Fred Allen would make fun of) and Friend's Baked Beans. Henry Gladstone could sell ice to the Eskimos; he's that convincing. Henry Gladstone (m.c.), Walter Eddy (Professor Emeritus of Columbia University, head of the "Good Housekkeeping Bureau"), Ella Mason (dietician, home economist). 29:17. Audio condition: Excellent. Complete.
