Not a child anymore yet not yet a grownup. What's a teen to do? This DVD is a collection of films shown to students in the 1950s in order to teach them the rules of adult behavior. Sometimes serious, sometimes unintentionally funny the running theme of these classic health films is that if teens wanted to be treated like adults they need to act like adults. Whether or not any teenager ever took this advice is certainly up for debate but after 50 years is certainly fun to watch. One of the most amusing clips implies that if you gossip you won't have very many friends. Tell that to Star Magazine!
The movie reflects the mindset of adults in the 50's and 60's. It argues that a person should be judged by his/her true worth and ability, rather than by economic background or social skills. At one point a clip suggests going to church sponsored coffee houses, always a popular spot for the cool kids! This movie will show you just how far we have come in understanding the youth of today!
