A film illustrating the many uses of glass in our everyday lives. The film begins with a brief introduction of the history and the properties of glass. There is a heavy emphasis on research at Corning Glass Works, in such areas as photo-sensitive glass, photoform glass, tempering of glass, glass pipes and vessels, cookware, pressing, fiberglass,Vycor, and so much more. There is some coverage of the processes involved in glass manufacture, both by mass production and by hand. There is a good segment on the ribbon machine, used to produce light bulbs at a rate of 1,000 bulbs per minute. Also discussed and demonstrated, Prince Rupert's drops.
