Jubilee Video: Fort Fairlane Giveaway

In this 1960 Jubilee video, unexpected four-wheeled prizes inspire mania. The highest-distributor cup is awarded to Jo and Bill Carter from Medford, NJ.

In 1954, Brownie Wise inaugurated the Tupperware Homecoming Jubilee. Hundreds of 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 -- often for glamorous prizes.
