DescriptionBecause a high school girl’s parents refuse to discuss sex education (called “personal hygiene” in the film) with her, she gets pregnant by her boyfriend, who conveniently dies. Her parents are blamed, and the local sex education teacher uses this opportunity to show a film showing the dangers (and results) of VD and the birth of a baby.

    During the ’40s and ’50s at the time of WWII and The Korean War, these films were geared towards High School Kids–of “Draft Age”. And now, we get to see ’em. (with a beer, hopefully)
    Thanks, Rarelust.

    It flabbergasts me that anyone would want to watch this. For what reason?

      It’s a historical document. We think of old films as being stuffy material from a square bygone era, and/or limited by the Hays Code; and some of this is evident in the use of language like “hygiene” and “in trouble” – but thanks to road shows, the “educational” label, and other wacky loopholes, lurid exploitation pieces like this were possible.

      And the more things change, the more they stay the same. A high school teacher in this film nearly loses his job pushing for education on the vital basics of sexual health, safety, and responsibility. He runs up against moralizing, squeamish parents who insist their daughters shouldn’t even learn where babies come from until after marriage. And sure, it’s just a movie, a fictionalized story…but I know healthcare providers who ran into scarily similar levels of opposition in real life 60-70 years later in conservative rural areas with epidemic teen pregnancy rates.

      Also, it’s a pretty unforgettable wacky old picture. Beats the hell out of some dime-a-dozen war or romance snoozefest any day of the week.

      Because I heard John Waters reference it when discussing early trash cinema. Now I have to see what he was talking about.
