Seven educational films that try to steer self-conscience teens in right the direction!

JUNIOR PROM 1946
U.S. educational film. A look at two teenage couples preparing for their big date at the Junior Prom! At the teen hangout the conversation is skillfully redirected so Frank can learn Helen's likes and dislikes. Jerry criticizes Frank's socks and tie as being too loud for the semi-formal nature of the Prom and reminds him not to blow his car horn when he picks up Helen! Lots of self-conscience, ill-at-ease and sulky moments until everyone opens up and has fun!

BEGINNING TO DATE 1953
U.S. educational film. Classic teenage dating film featuring a bunch of junior high school kids going to their first dating party. An insecure young boy who has just reached dating age learns how to plan and enjoy a date (with a girl at least one foot taller than him!). No one gets laid but they seem to have a swell time anyway! Studs Terkel as Swimming Coach.

HOW TO SAY NO 1951
U.S. educational film. A group of teenagers talk about situations they've gotten into, and how they could have stuck to their morality, but not looked like jerks to their peers. Their issues include smoking, drinking, petting and sex! Some of the suggestions include simply saying "no," "changing the subject" and "creating distractions." Lucy doesn't think distractions would work when a boy insists on petting.

DATING: DO'S AND DONT'S 1949
U.S. educational film. Awkward Woody has the hots for Ann (Hey Woody, how'd you get your nickname?), so they go on a nice wholesome date to the Hi-Teen Carnival and have a swell time. We learn the "do's and dont's" of proper dating for boys. Classic scene has Woody dumping Ann at the doorstep, he says "see ya" turns and splits! Another scenario has him groping Ann for a kiss and probably a tit squeeze!

GOING STEADY? 1951
U.S. educational film. Teenagers Jeff and Marie have aimlessly drifted into a relationship where Jeff simply shows up at the door whenever he wants. Marie wonders why no other boys ask her out. In the meantime, Jeff asks Marie’s friend Diane out, but she refuses because she assumes Jeff and Marie are going steady. "Going steady? Me?! How did I get into this!" wonders Jeff. This film was made to discourage teenagers from drifting into premarital sex.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IT’S LOVE? 1950
U.S. educational film. Nora and Jack wonder if they're really in love. They double date with Bob and his fiancé, Jean to a restaurant that features both Chinese and American food. Jack asks Nora, "Have you heard the new Brahms violin concerto?" Nora is startled by this intimidating question. We can see her wondering if she and Jack have a chance after all. Then Jack shuts down and refuses to try the Chinese food. He orders the leg of lamb. Poor Nora is stuck sharing the Lobster Cantonese with the more adventurous Bob and Jean.

HOW MUCH AFFECTION? 1958
U.S. educational film. Mary, a teenage girl, is upset because she and Jeff have just found themselves on the verge of going "too far!" Mary’s mom tells her to "slow down" so that she can exercise "judgment rather than emotion." In the final scene, Mary invites Jeff in for a sandwich after a party instead of going "to the point and park a while" like the other kids. They dance together as Mom’s echo-y voice reminds Mary to "just slow down.” Jeff has an interior monologue and reminds himself that “we have so much fun together; I’d sure hate to ruin everything."
