Watch a Turkey Fashion Show From 1951

Nick Greene

What's worse than being a turkey on Thanksgiving? Being a turkey on Thanksgiving in 1950s Georgia.

Before facing the ax, turkeys in Griffin, Georgia, suffered a much greater indignity: a fashion show. Costumes in this 1951 newsreel include a football player and a beauty queen. These are nice, but the turkey dressed as Snow White takes the cake. She is joined by Seven Dwarfs played by her little chicks—"soon to be orphans," the narrator gleefully exclaims.

Happy Thanksgiving!
