Synopsis

Educational Archives: Sex & Drugs
This program features eight hours of digitally mastered short films about sex and drug prevention created for school childrenbetween the 1940s and the 1970s. In a modern light, many of these films appear humorous in their misinformation and obvious scare tactics. ~ Cammila Collar, Rovi

Educational Archives: Social Engineering 101
In this collection of vintage educational films dating from the late 1940s though the early 1970s, children are informed of the best ways to fit in socially, wash thoroughly, make smart decisions, and exercise proper cafeteria etiquette. Films featured include Lunchroom Manners, Shy Guy, Why Doesn't Cathy Eat Breakfast?, Soapy the Germ Fighter, The Outsider, and more. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Educational Archives: Driver's Ed
This release compiles driver safety films from the forties and fifties. Due to their earnestness and occasionally graphic content, these films continue to have a cult following. Included are films with the titles The Bottle and the Throttle, Safety Belt For Susie, The Last Prom, and The Talking Care. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Educational Archives: On the Job
This release compiles workplace safety films. Due to their earnestness and occasionally graphic content, these films continue to have a cult following. Included are films with the titles Shake Hands with Danger, The Trouble with Women, When You Grow Up, and How to Keep a Job. Films like these often became fodder for the satirical program Mystery Science Theater 3000. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
