Housework in I'll Be Seeing You (1944)

I'll Be Seeing You (1944), which we covered in this previous post, and also in this one, features this scene of Ginger Rogers and Spring Byington cleaning the living room. 

Can you think of any other classic films where the characters are seen doing everyday housecleaning chores -- who don't happen to be servants, just housework in their own home?

Charlie Ruggles as a millionaire trying to make a bed in It Happened on 5th Avenue is a hoot!

Mrs. Hardy and Aunt Milly are often seen puttering about the kitchen in the Hardy family movies.

Elsa Lanchester as the mom in Lassie Come Home did a lot of wiping and swiping in their tidy cottage.

Good eye for the housecleaning, CW. The thing I especially liked about I'LL BE SEEING YOU is pulling out the couch cushions and vacuuming. No mention of finding coins in between the cushsions, but I like to think Ginger found a nickel or two.
