Julia Child’s French Onion Soup – 1963 and 1989

Interesting to compare:
1) Video production methods (1963 was live-to-tape no cuts, B&W; 1989 was Color and cut/edited as part of series)
2) Distribution (1963 was public television broadcast; 1989 was VHS tape and printed booklet)
3) Cooking Demonstration (1963 included much discussion of knife care tips plus pre-prepared pots to show cooking stages and avoid time delays; 1989 followed one prepared pot using time edits to avoid time delays)
4) Julia (magnificent as ever : )
