I believe Lucille Ball also starred in a Fuller Brush movie by another name, of course!

I think Red Skelton played The Fuller Brush Man in that movie.

Fuller Brush was one of those great companies that made stuff without planned obsolescence. Their products simply lasted and lasted!
Maybe that's why they're no longer in business????

They made really great products, I had a hairbrush for over 30 years.  The handle on the brush just gave out one day and I wish I could have found another just like it.  Remember also the Kirby and Electrolux vacuums that they came dor to door to sell.  The demo was always the best, throwing lots of dirt on the carpets to show you the power of those machines.

there were also welcomed salespeople from "Stanley Home Products" and "Jewel Tea" who came to the home with household and food items. I have burned in my brain a disturbing picture of my mom and her friends sitting around (like at a shower or tupperware party) while a creepy man rubbed their calves with an exfoliant lotion that they all loved....he then rubbed their legs vigorously with a turkish towel and they ALL bought the wonder lotion.....
