While the concept of "the teenager" had been around for many years, it wasn't until after World War II that an actual "teen culture" emerged and began to worry the adults. The films on this DVD compilation examine some of the issues that plagued teens - problems with personal hygiene, the temptations of alcohol, juvenile delinquency, dating, and how to deal with parents who just don't understand. These films may seem conservative by today's standards but they were actually progressive for their time justby attempting to prevent teens from making mistakes that could alienate themselves from society and ruin their lives.Name Unknown (1964; Sid Davis Productions; 10 minutes): A juvenile court judge serves as grim storyteller to a young teen who ranoff with a bank robber. The judge warns that even good teenagers can be "delinquent in good sense". He warns of the dangers of making-out in remote places, babysitting for strangers, and being picked up by someone driving a convertible in a town where every stranger is a sex-craved killer.Going Steady (1951; Coronet Films; 10 minutes): While this film tries to offer a balanced view of the pros and cons of "going steady," the message is pretty clear-don't do it (yet). Adults were concerned about exclusive dating since this would lead to heavy petting, premarital sex or worse; settling down with the wrong person. The film implies that teen couples must be ever vigilant to avoid the fate of Marie and Jeff, who found themselves going steady without even knowing it!Getting Along with Parents (1953; Encyclopedia Britannica Films; 13 minutes): The gang is all excited about the upcoming dance and especially about their visit to the glamorous Blue Room afterwards, until their parents nix the idea.
