In 1954, Brownie Wise inaugurated the Tupperware Homecoming Jubilee. Tupperware dealers from across the country came to the company's Kissimmee, Florida, headquarters for classes and motivational events. Wise gave each year's gathering a theme, with high spectacle and outrageous competitions.

Wise emcees a men's fashion show during the 1957 Jubilee -- and grants a Chicago woman's wish.
