Better than some but doubt it's better than most.

Modern refrigerators are more electrically efficient than those just a decade ago. Many have ice makers built-in so you don't have to empty the trays like she demonstrated. Some have cold water and ice dispensors in the door. Mine has french doors with a freezer drawer at the bottom since you don't go into the freezer as often. And there is a fruit and vegetable drawer with a controller to specify humidity levels which is a step better than this 1956 model. They all come with egg and butter compartments but they are removable and that's what I did -- removed them. Eggs come in their own cartons so no need to remove them from the container that has the expiration date written on them. The butter fits on a shelf or in the door without using a larger spot.

Being in the UK as most Boreme users are, I've seen how small a typical refrigerator is so this might be considered a great technological achievement for your standards but it isn't for ours. In 1956 it was a good design though.
