The rapid post-World War II changes in the American family are revealed in the fourth part of this video series looking at American lifestyles during the 1940s. Narrated by Westbrook Van Voorhis, The March of Time: American Lifestyles - The American Family, the Post-War Years presents the archival news segments "Life With Baby," "Nobody's Children," "Life With Junior," "Life With Grandpa," and "Marriage and Divorce." Gleaned from nearly two decades of newsreels produced by Time, Inc. during the years 1935-1951, the monumental The March of Time videotape series features the pictorial journalism that informed, educated, and entertained millions of Americans for over a decade, and won two Academy awards as well.
