VOLUME 6
TROUBLED TEENS

Educational films of the 1950s-70s were most fascinating when they moved beyond the three Rs to address more delicate issues—subjects that teachers often found difficult to discuss with their students. Sexual development, juvenile delinquency, and personal hygiene are just some of the awkward topics addressed in this assortment of films culled from the archives of A/V Geeks. Though the social problems have remained fairly constant through the decades, the methods by which filmmakers approach these subjects have changed radically, from the refreshingly frank (the sex-ed film As Boys Grow) to the melodramatic (the legendary driver safety film The Last Date, starring Dick York); from psychedelic (Teeth) to naturalistic (Lucy). Whether viewed as unintentially campy comedies or as snapshots of three decades of American popular culture, the films in TROUBLED TEENS are charming to behold, yet still maintain the ability to surprise the viewer with moments of unexpected poignance. This disc also includes a sampling of films that provide adults with the tools necessary to handle the often sticky issues of adolescence.
