I can confirm that Tom P. from 3/12 and JLP from 2/10 are both haunted by the same vintage fire safety film as I am, which I learned today is called “Another Man’s Family.” Thanks to Kindertrauma, after 40 years I now know that I didn’t imagine it.
It’s available on YouTube, although the quality is extremely poor… but you can still watch the whole family drop dead one by one in their blazing home and then see the fire department rake the ashes of the kid’s toys in the morning.
Oh yes, perfectly suitable to show to a classroom of 10-year-olds in 1972.
AUNT JOHN SEZ: Thanks Simminy for finally putting the fire out on this lingering Name That Trauma. The video is available in three parts on YouTube (PART 1, PART 2, & PART 3), but as Simminy cautions, the quality is quite poor. I recommend muting the sound and playing “Burning Down the House.”
Also, I would be remiss if I didnâ€™t mention that the Amazing Senski suspected â€œAnother Manâ€™s Familyâ€ in the comments on JLPâ€™s initial Name That Trauma, but the video was not available on YouTube at the time of his posting. Thanks Senski!
