The Relaxed Wife, 1957 Industrial Film Promoting Atarax Tranquilizer

This awesomely surreal vintage short is comprised of snippets of a longer 1957 pharmaceutical film titled The Relaxed Wife which promoted a tranquilizer under the brand name Atarax. In 1957, Atarax (hydroxyzine hydrochloride) was manufactured by Pfizer Company (it no longer is) and it was named after the Greek word for tranquility, “ataraxia”.

The entire film is available from the Prelinger Archives at Internet Archive.
