From Rugs to Riches1956

  • 3.2
Ever wondered about rugs? Ever wondered about how to sell a rug? If so, as a rug salesperson, did you ever wonder how to sell more rugs? More rugs than ever before? In this training film for Caprolan nylon rugs, the great Jonathan Winters shows sales-folks how to do their job better. How, indeed, to go FROM RUGS TO RICHES. "You get the idea."

The one-and-only Jonathan Winters takes what would otherwise be a relatively tiresome sales film and transforms it into an immensely droll lark full of double entendres. Absolutely worth a quarter-hour of your time.

Insane salesmen's instructional film that you probably shouldn't watch until your insomnia goes to 4 am and you realize you aren't going to sleep anyway.

Jonathan Winters gets five stars!

Loved it! Jonathan Winters always satisfies. It's Caprolan for me!

Oh, Fandor, I love you so. Where else can you find 50's sales training videos discussing such controversial issues as pre-marital carpeting.

A not very clever ad piece.
