Forum: prelinger Subject: Searching for a classic soap commercial (1960s/1970s)


Approximately a year ago, I downloaded a soap commercial from the Archive. Judging by my memory of the looks of the people involved, I would guess it was from the 1960s or 1970s. The audio was in mono, and there was an apple tree involved. The main character, a woman, was watering her garden outdoors as her children ran around, and at one point sprayed her children with the hose.

I have been searching for this upload for a while now. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I posted this in the Prelinger forums because they are frequented by people who know their classic commercials well, but the upload I am thinking of was likely in Classic TV or some subcollection thereof.

Thank you for any information you can provide.

After a bit of searching, I found it myself.

Turns out the upload's metadata does not mention a date of production, but I'm still going to guess that it is from the 1960s or 1970s.
